    My school's campus requires us to download a program (Clean Access Agent), before we can get online. However, we can get access for 1 hour without it. Does this mean I'll just have to keep getting off and on to stay online? Will this work?

    It will for awhile until the IT folks get tired of it & just block the device entirely.

    #3 friend's iPhones work flawlessly. I am worried about getting one now...

    Apparently, Cisco Clean Access Agent only supports Windows, so I guess it'll either deny you access or ignore you completely.

    By chance have you ever plugged a Mac into the school's network?

    It's wireless, so I've never "plugged in", but plenty of people in my classes have Mac's and don't seem to have a problem.

    the iphone has AT&T as a provider for the net, not the school's.

    Hmm... that's tricky.
    I would just get the touch and find out.
    If I'm connected to my schools server on my iPod touch I will not be able to go to any sites blocked.
    It is just like I'm on one of their computers.
    Although, if I really wanted to go to a specific site that is blocked I know several ways around it.
    Yay for being in my schools computer tech class.

    He probably meant when his friend turned on his iPhone's wifi.
