Usually this occurs when they enter the wrong WPA key. It will keep trying and trying, then end up with "Limited or no connectivity". What I would do in this situation is do a reset on the Access Point (Holding the button down for 10 sec, unplug, replug from power and after 10 more seconds of holding reset button) reconfigure the Access point through the WEB CONFIGURATION PAGE. To access this page, look at your documentation for the "Default IP Address". This will allow you to configure it better. Enter a new WPA Key, and put it on your roomies laptop. You might also want to see if you can find a FIRMWARE upgrade for your Access Point. That usually helps. Good luck and post your results here.
