comment Do two computers connected on the same Wi-Fi have the same IP address?
no MAC is lower level than IP, and it doesn't leave the network (messages from outside use your router's MAC), a NAT box essentially is a MitM that looks at each TCP connection that an internal pc wants to make and makes its own connection and forwards its incoming messages.

it is possible that the wirless router doesn't do NAT, for example a internal accesspoint in a business office where the NAT box is elsewhere

because bios can read the usb and it can contain a boot sector that will then act as a normal bootable disk drive

@and31415 they still won't like it if you use the key on more systems than you paid for

comment I'm using Chrome and Chrome Sync; does Google have access to my passwords?
@and31415 who is to say they don't send that passphrase over in some way, Google controls the entire Sync suite so I believe that they could steal that passphrase behind the scenes (if they were evil)
