my college has a wifi network that is basically unprotected (the password is "mlbtheshow"), but it'll mess with port 80 http traffic if you're not a game console or roku or smth like that. anyone know how it's figuring out what's a console and what's a computer? mac address? host name?

@commie could just be destination filtering allowing those services through but filtering everything else.

mb try hitting roku's API server from your desktop

@thurloat that'd be a good guess, but things like firefox running on a fire stick don't have the same restrictions.
