Something strange going on

I have a d-link g604t and 1 pc and 1 wireless laptop and a wireless print sever all working happily together until last night i had all the xmas photos on my laptop and father in law wanted a copy, instead of burning a cd i thought i would take the laptop and do a p2p network with his pc. This morning when i booted up the laptop it could see the router but wouldn't work the router after a lot of messing about i eventually got everything working again.
My question is should doing a straight forward p2p with another pc not on the network mess up all my settings?

If you connected directly to another PC using a crossover cable and used fixed IP addresses, the network adapter would be unable to get an address by DHCP from the router until you set the TCP/IP settings back to obtaining the IP address automatically.
