Saw this article:

The interesting part:

'A federal investigation of the Gaylord Opryland Resort and
Convention Center in Nashville found that Marriott employees
had used "containment features of a Wi-Fi monitoring system"
at the hotel to prevent people from accessing their own
personal Wi-Fi networks.'

I'm aware of how the illegal wifi blocking devices work, but
any idea what legal hardware they were using to effectively
keep their own wifi available but render everyone else's
