    A bit drastic, but my mum used to do this when I was a bit younger. I had a genius idea though - we had a spare router lying unused in the cupboard, so I set it up and tucked it behind the cupboard, taking all the cables from the main router and putting it into the secret router. The main router would be plugged in with some of the lights on so she'd think it was still running, when the router that I was getting my internet from was chugging away from behind the unit, undetected and unaffected
    Okay damn that is clever what kind of genius are you?

    omg my mother does this when I'm not listening to her to get my attention xD And its also "Internet off after 11pm" in this household :sad: Although my mum normally "threatens" to do it so if I follow the rules, she wont turn anything off and I can go on it secretly when she's asleep.

    Doing something off the internet for a while won't kill you.

    If your really lucky you might find a neighbours router that is using WEP.

    All you need to do then is set up a wireless packet capture, force the router to log the neighbour off so they then log in again. And then capture that login packet.... And then brute force that using hashcat... Been a while since I did that so it might be 85% accurate.

    (Please don't actually do this)

    I certainly do NOT miss the days when my dad used to switch off the WiFi at night 😂 he would turn it off and take one of the cables away, so I just bought a spare cable and would plug that in at night, use the WiFi and then take the cable out when I was done lol, was effort.
