    Not really. If you're using a tunnel such as Tor, it's not going to show up as HTTP traffic, just a number of TCP sessions with random servers. You can bypass this by running one browser with Tor, and a second browser normally. HTTP traffic will still be present and will not set off obvious flags.
    As already suggested the only solution would be to connect directly to the modem, which might not be practical depending on its location in the house?

    Also if anyone else in the house tried to connect to the internet whilst you were doing this the cat would be out of the bag!

    I don't know if this is possible but you would need a pay-as-you-go mobile internet account and a dongle. A rather expensive solution I know, but all that I can think of that would not risk discovery on the home network, as you wouldn't be using it.
    In the US, you can get wireless dongles for less than $100 and prepaid service for about $50/mo
    An ordinary account would be no good unless you could get the statements sent somewhere other than home college perhaps? Otherwise it would again be a dead giveaway.

    All you would have to do then is boot from a live CD to protect you from any software installed on the laptop.
    Heh. Message too short.
    Real security doesn't come with an installer.

    Hmmm, it would be rather more expensive over here. You guys seem to get much better value on anything IT related than we do over here

    I guess I am just being hyper cautious, the idea of running a second browser as a smokescreen is an interesting idea, particularly if you use FF with the TrackMeNot plugin. This generates fake lookups every few minutes.

    I guess it all depends on just how suspicious the father is. I know that if I saw something inexplicable I would be
