Do you have more information on the laptop?

Also, try setting the DNS manually. Google Public DNS is a decent one. Main:, Secondary:
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.
