Why can't I connect to the internet?

I just moved. Everyone in the house can connect to the wi-fi. I can not. Am I missing something?

I realize this question is totally bush-leauge, but I'm on my phone so I can't really scour google at lightning speed at the moment.
What could be the issue here? Here are some details:
- I am in the third floor bedroom. The wifi device is on the first floor.
- My android phone can connect to the wifi from my bedroom, but my computer can not.
- I was able to connect my computer this morning when I restarted the wifi, but when I came home from work this evening the connection was gone and would not reconnect.
- People in the house stream movies on xbox live on the first floor (like right now) - could this have an effect? This prevents me from restarting the internet at the moment.
I guess my first question is, is there a setting on my computer that I may have enabled/disabled that is screwing this up for me? The second question is, if not, what solutions come to mind here?
