Do you have more information on the laptop?
Also, try setting the DNS manually. Google Public DNS is a decent one. Main: 126.96.36.199, Secondary: 188.8.131.52
These are accessible from the properties of the wireless interface. That will test if it is your DNS server or not.
If you are running Vista, this is a problem I've seen happen a lot, and happened to myself, even.
I don't know of a current fix, but someone else might.
