wireless network problems

I have just gone to set up a basic wireless network between my pc [host] and my sons. His pc is actually receiving the signal from my pc without a problem but we cannot seem to get his pc to access the internet or e mail via my pc broadband connection.
We have tried many things but none seem to fix this. I think it may be a software setting possibly something to do with IP address but that is only a guess
The gateway is a LINKSYS wag54g whilst his pci adaptor is a D-Link DWL-G520+
Any ideas.

Check you ip ipconfig /all from a cmd prompt and check the other pc they should be the same except the ip address. All that is likely to be wrong is he hasnt got the default gateway set to the ip of the LINKSYS wag54g or he doesnt have dns setup. If this doesnt sort it for you post the result of the ipconfig /aal for both pc and do a tracert from the other pc to www.plus.net and post the reuslt ie tracert www.plus.net
