My roommate and I are sharing internet with the neighbors and they are using an Airlink router (I'm not sure what version, because the neighbors own it). I have been able to connect to the internet and it can be really slow since it is being shared between 4 people, and we are using CenturyLink. However, for the first time, my current laptop (windows 8, bigfoot wireless n-1202), my previous laptop (windows 7, some atheros wireless network adapter), and my android phone cannot connect to the internet. Everything works fine using the WiFi at school, so I am convinced that the network adapters are not the problem. Also, my roommate has never had any issues using the internet.

What is confusing is that I have been able to connect to the internet before, but now I can't. There are a lot of applications that update automatically which could cause this problem, but how do I find out which ones have updated in the last 2 days? What might I do to diagnose this problem and solve it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Where is the main network connection located? If it's from your neighbors, that could be a signal to distance issue with lots of internet connection sharing the bandwith.
