My ISP allows me to connect only using ethernet (ethernet socket just in the wall, because the same ISP provides internet for the whole building [student halls]) and sometimes requires web auth after connecting. It redirects to their homepage where I have to enter login/pwd (couldn't find how this is called).
I want to use two laptops and it sucks to keep connecting and disconnecting the only available cable.
I was thinking about getting a switch but I guess it won't work because it will need one IP for each laptop allocated by ISP (but I guess they allocate one-per-apartment (socket) so won't work). At least according to my understanding.
What about getting a router? From what I understood back in network classes, router would get one IP and my two laptops would act as a subnet. Which is fine. But what about that web auth thing?
