Linksys router does not see wireless laptop #2

Linksys router does not see wireless laptop #2

Linksys router does not see wireless laptop #2

In the Easy Link My Network shows a grey planet instead of color as when normal, and under Network Status it shows there is a problem "Internet connection not working" but my PC and wireless laptop #1 are connected and surfing just fine and I can see the IP addresses under My Network of Linksys.

My Network sees the Hardwired PC, the wireless laptop #1, an IP Phone and the hardwired printer but does not see the wireless laptop #2.

So I need help with the following;

#1 Why does the internet work on both hardwired and wireless #1 but not on #2?

#2 Why does the router think the internet is not working when it is?

I have Model Number Linksys WRT54GS, Firmware Version 1.52.5, Security Mode WPA, Internet Connection Type dhcp, Wireless Network Mode Mixed and all PCs run XP. The router is running from a Bell Sympatico (internet provider) Modem.
