I am a college student who likes to play mine craft with my friends. Unfortunately our laptops are monitored (using DYKnow).

I have a Gopro hero 3 that has inbuilt Wi-Fi. We tried using that to play but we can't access each others game (we can still see it in the multi-player section).

Does anyone know what I can do?

Which OS are you and your friends using? – Hennes Sep 4 '13 at 15:33
Mainly asking to know if I should point to the windows solution (netsh wlan set hostednetwork ...) or a BSD / Linux one. – Hennes Sep 4 '13 at 15:36

Windows Firewall exceptions for Minecraft and java are needed. If you are using windows OS. Had this same issue setting up a local server for my kids.
