This is a little weird.  What do you mean 'clobbered the wireless router?'

I might be wrong on this but to be able to push a file to a machine I 
would bet that sshd has to be running on the machine running the file.

I am not totally sure what you are asking but I am pretty sure that 
answer is yes.  If the school machine doesn't have a firewall standing 
in its way you should be able to connect to it, and push files to it 
from a wired or wireless computer on your network.


To be or not to be, that is the question
                2b || !2b
(0b10)*(0b1100010) || !(0b10)*(0b1100010)
        0b11000100 || !0b11000100
        0b11000100 || 0b00111011
        255, that is the answer.
