    run cmd.exe as admin
    netsh int ip reset
    reboot computer
    paste "ipconfig /all" only if pinging google.com is successful.

    Can you paste the results of "ipconfig /all" with your roommate's computer.

    Have you tried restarting the router?
    Try manually configuring your IP with the settings below. Press winkey, type "view network connections" w/o quotes, press enter, find your wireless adapter continue here.
    Code:
    IP address: 192.168.1.253
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1
    Run cmd.exe
    ping 192.168.1.1
    ping google.com
    post results here

    Btw what firewall are you using? What was your last activity before the problem? Did you un/install some applications?

    RE: Laptop

    one other thing you can try , Turn of your laptop , then turn back on ,
    holding the zero key down while it's booting up ! as they come already
    with the operating system installed it resets the comp if
    I'm not mistaken ! (buying something with the operating system installed SUCKS )
    IMHO

    Must have been a Windows Update or some other download that messed the laptops WiFi up. Does it connect to the Internet using a wired connection?

    download, unzip and execute LSPFIX

    Also get a picture of your routing table thus
    run->cmd and enter ROUTE PRINT
    copy and paste into a CODE block (ie click the # icon and paste between the two tokens)

    There is no wired connection in my building and the holding 0 trick did not work. I cannot run LSPFIX without an internet connection.
