    I was just randomly thinking about this....
    How did Marriot block patrons from using their own WiFi hotspot ?
    - jamming freqs wouln't work - as their own sigs would fail too
    - hijack SSID would work for awhile
    - only register MAC of real computers connected to network
    - ???

  2. "Jamming" of sorts using Allot NetEnforcer.

    Download the above file, save it somewhere, rename it
    Gaylord_Publish.pdf, and you should be able to read it.
    "Fair Share WiFi Access" = jamming

    Basically, the NetEnforcer box detects "rogue" access points, and
    floods the AP with deauth frames from a forged MAC address. There are
    similar systems from other vendors used to detect rogue access points
    in corporate or secure environments.
