Default A strange problem with my network. Need advice

I have 3 computers coupled to a Linksys wireless router, that is coupled to
a braodband connection. All computers are XP and the IP numbers are through

Everything worked fine.
Then my little son got his hands on my laptop (coupled via a wireless card)
and suddenly that computer has no connection with the network or internet
anymore. I look at all the settings in the network card properties,
everything OK it seems, but ipconfig tells me there is no ip address
assigned to the card couse it cant find the DHCP server. ipconfig /release
/renew does not help.

OK I try the cabled network slot on my laptop. Same results.

I try the network setup wizard. That only adds a bridge connection but
doesn't help the situation.

Through another computer in my network I indeed see that the laptop is not

In the network card properties of the laptop card I then set a static IP

This works -for both the built in network adapter as well as the wireless
card- but the weird thing is that I now can make contact with the network
again, but not with the internet, eventhough i get the message that internet
is now connected.

The othetr computers on the network have no problems and can access the
network and the internet.

Anybody any idea what is going on? Am I missing something somewhere? What
can I do to fix it.
