What strikes me about that list is the ones that don't work are
NetworkManager aware - I wonder if NetworkManager is telling them the
connection is offline.

Do you have a NetworkManager icon in your systray? Does it show your
network connection? How are you setting up your connection? What's
different between your network when at your Brother's house?

More info please...
