Hi pumpkinslion,

Not sure how your computers are set up at the minute and that is the important bit in solving your problem. If you could reply with what your current configuration is that would help. However, from the info you have supplied it would appear that the only reason you cannot access the internet is because your laptop has no default gateway. In short a default gateway will be required to access the internet. I will be glad to assist but I will need to know how your network is arranged at the minute. For instance how is your computer that can access the internet connected ?? I'm assuming you have some kind of wireless router which will be necessary for your laptop (if not you will need one) if so the settings may need adjusting but once I have the info I need I will talk you through step by step.
