You shouldn't need to update your drivers or BIOS to get a machine connected to the Internet as long as your Wireless or Local Network Adapter was functioning.
Anyways you're now saying that the Desktop is working, but the Laptop isn't right? Are you connecting the laptop directly to the router with a Network Cable or via Wireless?

The laptop is not. we were relying on the wireless to hook that up to the net. I guess I am confused why we had it working but it doesnt any longer. We have been trying to figure out the settings again.
