Yes. If your wireless is not locked down, they very well could be getting on your network and getting the same IP.

However, it seems more probable that there is malware on your system allowing a hacker to take control of your pc remotely. Especially since the emails are coming from your IP.

After you download some malware scanning software like malware bytes, disconnect your computer from the net and start a full scan. Make sure it's clean before going online again.

Once you get back online, change your passwords immediately.
