is it possible to block downloads of certain files at the router level, Because I think my school just blocked the download of torrent files. BAHHHHHHHHHHH

Yes, absolutely. Could be at a router, could be a content filtering device, could be the firewall, or it could even be blocked at an IPS (intrusion prevention system).

Talk to the sys admin at the school. If you have a legitimate need, they just might open it up for you. We do that here at work.

hdtv really is 100% nicer than normal tv, It just isnt the same....
But I totally prefer to buy rather than download xbox games.
That's right, Snow. Just say NO to piracy!

is it possible to block any packet that has rc4 encryption at the router level? Its possible to block *any* packet at the router level. Its just a matter of what parameters are put on it.
