3. Its WEP, We cracked our old school WEP network in about 30mins using Kismac to show SMT that the wireless was due an upgrade.
Hope this helps

Take the MAC address and give the device a reservation.
Set up reservation specific options so that the DNS and Gateway points to the BB itself along with any other options that may generally screw the device up.
That should at least dead end him until you have a chance to track him down.
The WiFi client must have been fully associated to the AP in order to make a DHCP request so they must know your WEP or WPA keys.
So, Blacklist the MAC address in your WiFi AP's ACL list.

No-one in IT would have given out WEP codes, but possible that someone came into our room and picked up some paper with them on.
We're going to look into upgrading to WPA with complete new keys when we're not so busy.
In the mean time i've reserved the device an address and pointed it back on itself.
That should slow the person down while I get busy accessing the AP to block the address completely.
Many thanks for all your suggestions!
