Roku Dorm/Hotel connection

I keep trying to connect to a wifi system that you need a web interface to connect to. I go through all the steps in the dorm/hotel connection. (connecting my laptop to the roku and signing into the webservice through the browser).

At that point the internet is working fine on the roku and i can load up all the streaming apps but as soon as I shut down my laptop I lose connection on the roku. Is the internet connecting being piped through my laptop which I absolutely don't want. Can anyone let me know how I can get this hotel connection to work after turning off my laptop?
