Hey, for unknown reasons my schools wireless network is secured by only accepting certain MAC addresses. 1: Whats a good program(GUI wanted) to sniff out MAC addresses, and 2: how would I change my own to it(Kubuntu).

I doubt anyone is going to help you because the information is going to be used to most likely go against your schools AUP.

Unknown reasons?

Not hardly...

It's called "securing the network against un-wanted users".

Can it be cracked? If the IT folks are doing their job, then NO.

Ask the network administrator to add your machine to the list.
