High Schools Chrome book security won't allow WiFi gateway connect since xfinity google apps blocked

    Have a Wireless Gateway: DPC3941T set up with 3 devices working.
    Cannot get the High Schools Chrome book to 'get through' the gateway.
    It's WiFi connected to the gateway, then there's a 'Network not available' screen with '...first need to visit the networks sign-in page...'.
    It then redirects to the register.be.xfinity.com page with the Apple app and Google play buttons to load one of the xfinity apps.
    At this point the Chrome book doesn't allow the loading of the app due to the schools security settings (or some such).
    So how to get the Chromebook past/through your gateway security without your app (and what ever it does).
    Is there a way to load a table somewhere in the gateway with the Chromebooks MAC address?

    I'm already in the gateway @10.0.0.1 and am now in the gateway via   https://internet.xfinity.com/connect  so my laptop and two other devices are OK (after negotiating the convoluted xfinty apps and deadends with no documentation).

More detail.

    I can get to Google/CIA play and try to start the down load (of any app actually, not just Xfinity) but then:

"This google account [set up and owned by the High School] is not yet associated with a device. Please access the Play Store app on your device before installing apps.  Learn more."
