I get the internet, my housemate doesn't - but we're both connecting to the network. What gives?

Internet connection issues in bachelor pad of two pseudo-luddites. Both macs. Both show connection to our dedicated, password protected network. I get internet connection, my housemate doesn't. What's up?

Thanks in advance.
We recently moved into a new place. The modem and router things are connected via cable modem in my bedroom. I use a MacBook Pro. My internet works fine.
My housemate, whose computer is on the other side of my bedroom, no more than 5 feet from the router, and, while it shows he's connected to the network, doesn't have internet access. He's using a mac mini.
We're using comcast, who apparently can't help us.
Anyone know what the problem might be?
Thanks again for your help and time. You guys rule!
