Laptop Connecting to Router but no internet?

Hello,
My friend has a BT home hub. He recently did system recovery on his laptop running vista, which used to connect to the net fine whenever he turned it on. Now however it does not connect to the internet, just the router itself. He also has a Desktop running windows XP, however this connects to the internet flawlessly. What could be the issue here?. I've tried a few things to help him with no success.

Any ideas?

Cheers

Its not that he can't see the computer on his network, his laptop running vista wont connect to the net but the Xp running PC will
