I presume that your having the ISP modem do the NAT and DHCP for your network?
If so then try this:

Check the roommates devices. If you set up the 857 as a wired AP and have the wired LAN cable going to the LAN port on the back of the 857, NOT the WAN port and you have the 857 configured correctly, All users regardless of wired or wireless should have internet access.
