This time no one can say "Buy a Mac" because we DID.

My new roommate's Macbook can't connect to my cable signal. What should we do to fix this?

She just moved in. Every time she tries to connect my existing signal, her computer times out and can't. And yes, we've checked that she's using the proper password and connecting to the proper signal.
She has an Apple MacBook, I have Time Warner Cable's "Roadrunner" service and a Belkin router. I can connect just fine.
An initial Google turned up one person who had similar troubles but did something with the "DNS numbers"; might that be it? What other things should we try?
