i'm not familiar with that firmware.. can you make the router's WAN MAC the same as your computers? no, your uni shouldn't be able to tell that it's a wireless router, unless they're doing more work then i'm sure they'd care to do.

my uni didn't allow the connections to be split at all-- no wireless, no switches, no routers. i used a router all the time, with wireless when i needed it. we had to register our mac address whenever a new device attempted to connect to the internet, but i don't know what your school does :-/

you could do some social engineering to see what's up-- hookup your wireless router, and play dumb as you call up your IT support number. tell them that you have a switch hooked up but that you can't reach the net. ask them if they can see whats connected to the port in your room.
