    in the hospital for the foreseeable future.
    My dad gifted me a sick laptop for my stay.
    Problem is STEAM and Blizzard Launchers are both blocked from connecting to the Internet WiFi.
    What can I do?
    Does getting a VPN make sense in this situation?

    Probably end up with a high ping / low bandwidth using a VPN, see if you can bypass it using a static DNS

    tbh if its foreseeable future ask the nursing staff to contact the IT people to make an exception for your MAC address
