netowrk is screwed

Hmmm, just had some bloke from a PC shop setup a wireless network on a PC and laptop and the laptop cannot connect to the Internet, just comes up with a page cannot be found error. It was working fine untill it rebooted the laptop a couple of times and now nothing. The network is on a Peer2Peer network, just my PC and the laptop. Both systems have full signal and I've even shut down my firewall to make sure it wasn't that, that was stoping it.

Any suggestions?

    Depends what you want to work. The PPP (bt) link has the default route, so most traffic will go through that, other than stuff for your 192.168.0.* network.
