As far as I'm aware the router needs to clone the cable modem ID and to do that both units need to be restarted at the same time.

Most wired network users are restricted from using routers because of the possibility of several computers at each point overloading the system. Possibly this is why the staff are unhelpful -- though plain ignorance of IT is probably the real reason.

Connect to the building's net with your computer, find the gateway's IP, connect to it using your router, enable NAT and see what happens.

For gateway IP try Windows Start, All Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt and type IPCONFIG /ALL
