Couldn't you just release the lease on the laptop if that's the case?
Ipconfig /release all
If not woundt a $20 wireless B hub/switch solve this for you?

Nah. you'd have had to call Cox and get them to manually expire the DHCP
lease assigned to your laptop's MAC address. I stuck the Vonage ATA
behind my OBSD firewall so I didn't experience that issue (did have to
make some firewall rule changes to prioritize VOIP SIP traffic)
