Return it to it's original settings to have any hope of it working.

Now what did you do just before this stopped working?

That is what we need to know and where you need to look. Also letting us know what it is what OS is in use and so on never hurts. It would be pointless telling you how to rebuild the TCP IP Stack in Red Hat if you are using some form of Windows now wouldn't it? It would also be as pointless telling you how to repair the TCP Stack in XP if you are using Vista or ME.

Well, you could try using the other laptop ...

As a solution.

Place the two laptops side by side and compare their settings.

That might show you what you altered on the one that doesn't work.

Try disabling and re-enabling..

the wireless card. This would release and renew the TCP/IP stack in XP. Also check if there is any static IP assigned to the machine. If there is, set it to dynamic. You can also check if the wireless router has MAC filtering enabled.
