    I came home last night and both my internet name and password were changed. I accessed the modem's website and changed both. I then hit connect to internet. My xbox worked, but none of my laptops. This morning I reset all the modem and the laptops. All of them connect but the internet is slow and fades in and out. My xbox tells my my NAT type is moderate. I go back on the modem's website and it says that none of my wireless devices can connect.

    Does this have to do with my port forwarding or do I have to manually allow each device into the network?

    By the way this all started when my roommate brought home his new laptop which coincidently is the only laptop that can connect successfully to the internet without physically being pluged into the router.

    I don't understand all of what you are saying nor what your "internet name" is, but some of what you say makes it sound like MAC Address filtering (or access control) is being used on the router to prevent all but that one wireless device to connect. If this is the case either disable that "feature" (best) or else add all the other MAC Addresses.
