WiFi problems using Laptop+Nokia E71 as modem!!

  buel 20:39 23 Dec 10

I recently downloaded a program called JoikuSpot that enables my phone to act as a WiFi Hotspot so i can use my laptop to access the web via my phone.
My phone accessed the web using the program just fine but for some reason my XP laptop connects with it fine but whenever i try to bring a page up it just wont load Google (my home page) whereas when i use my Vista laptop it loads up fine and i can search (although much slower than broadband, obviously)

When i hovered my mouse over the icon showing connectivity on the XP laptop it said:
Wireless network connection 4 (peer-to-peer)
11.0 mbps
Signal Strength excellent
Status connected

Please can anyone offer some advice as to where im going wrong?
