Marriott hotels wants to use Wi-Fi / cell phone jammers @marriott #TravelBrilliantly @MarriottIntl « adafruit industries blog. Here’s a comment that came in from Wolfgang S. Rupprecht-

Most of what I know about the Marriott WIFI blocking was learned from a thread on NANOG (North American Network Operators Group).  I don’t run a network but I find some of the banter on that list fascinating.

Just for completeness, here is what I posted to the google+ thread:

The 802.11 WIFI protocol has a bug where the de-authentication packet is not authenticated.  That allows anyone to forge a packet with a different wireless client’s MAC address and have their upstream access point tear down the connection.  NANOG had a long thread on this.  One interesting thing that came out of the NANOG discussion is that some big-name AP equipment even has provisions for automatically generating these forged de-authentication packets.

Personally I think people should be using a USB or Ethernet cable to tether their computers to their cell phones or hotspots.  That would keep Marriotts grubby hands off of the connection.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
