Changed ISP unable to send email with e-mail account of old ISP

I have a friend who has become totally reliant on an e-mail account, which was provided by an internet service provider which she has just left to go to a new ISP.

Computer, Y U NO connect to the Internet??

Is there a somewhat simple solution to this problem? We recently installed new wireless Internet at home but my laptop (older Toshiba Satellite) refuses to connect to the net. It will automatically find our network and connect to it, but doesn't go that step further to actually connect to the Internet. This only happens with the wireless at home - it works fine with other networks I've tried out. Is my computer just not recognizing the new modem?

Housemates are killing the interwebs

What do I do about sharing internet with housemates who kill it? Will a router with QoS solve the problem? Should I talk to them and ask them to change their settings on whatever programs they are using? Are there any tools I can use to which person is killing the internet and what program it is?

Oops.

I bought something on the internet. The store I bought it from seemed (after I placed the order) shady, didn't ship the item, wouldn't cancel the order. I went to my bank and filled out a form thing, my bank refunded the money for me. Today I got a shipping notice about the thing that I ordered. What now? [more inside]
