Short and simple answer: Boot up a Linux box behind the router and browse a web page.
Somewhat longer explanation:
Resnet sniffs your operating system from your browser. If you are running windows, you are required to install some security agent from Cisco. After installation, it communicates with Resnet and they authenticate you. If you are running behind a router, however, the agent can't contact Resnet, so they never know you've installed it.
If you're running Linux, however, your MAC address is recorded and you are allowed unfettered access. If you're running Linux behind a router, the router's MAC address is recorded and everything behind it gets access.

Everyone who came in and had us help set up Ubuntu Linux, please read this. We didn't realize that the G++ compiler had been separated from the GCC package, so you don't have a C++ compiler installed.
Please use the Synaptic package manager to search for "build-essential" and install that package.
