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
- ???

"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.

Re: Marriot WiFi blocking - how ?
tnx - very interesting reading the various blogs on the topic -
and it's against the CLIENTS - telling THEM to disconnect,
while the AP just sits there...
