i honestly have no idea why i would be banned from the network. i haven't downloaded any movies or music -- hell, i don't even have a p2p program installed. i don't even know what else would warrent them disconnecting me. luckily i have cable (bought for the laptop since their network only allows 1 computer per person -- amazing rule there) for now.

*sigh* i should have gone out tonight
You idiot! You got the cable because they only allow one computer? All you need to do is plug in the network to your router's WAN port. Hell I had wireless going when you were in Houston.
