OK, it looks like your router may have gotten confused. Here's something to try - shut down (power off) all the systems and the router. Wait at least a minute, then power up the router first, followed by the desktop, then the laptop. Check the IP assignments and see if they have changed.

(There's probably a better way to do this, but it worked for me a while back. What you are trying to do is get everything to reset and start fresh.)

Agreed, but IPv6 should be available. Perhaps power cycling will work on that also.

In any event, he's not going anywhere with networking if the machines are in different subnets (at least not easily)
