Right off the top I can imagine that the laptop is smirking because it has a battery to get it through the power outage. What may be happening is that the desktop loses it's ip address or the router defaults back to DHCP rather than PPPoE which is where it belongs for DSL. 3 ways to fix this:
1) Reset the power on the DSL modem and wait a minute or two.
2) Go to Start>Run>type 'cmd', Enter, type 'ipconfig /release' then 'ipconfig /renew' then 'ipconfig /all' to see all of the ip addresses for each adaptor and gateway.
3) Go to Start>Run type 'http://192.168.10.1' and a logon window appears. User name is 'motorola', Password is 'admin'. A webpage appears showing you are now talking to your router. In the LAN tab choose PPPoE for automatic DSL control settings. You can also temporarily select DHCP to use the 'Release' and 'Renew' buttons here which is the same as the ipconfig commands you did at the Command Prompt in step 2 but reselect PPPoE before you leave the router control panel. You can also select STATIC if you already know your ip addresses but for DSL you normally use PPPoE. If you haven't done this before then peruse all of the other controls that you can access here. (If you are a gamer this is where you set up your DMZ and so on.

The Motorola WR850G is a wireless router that attaches to a cable or DSL modem. The WR850G has two reset options.
Users can reset the router and retain the settings or reset it back to factory specifications to clear all settings.
Resetting the router can help with network issues such as dropped connections.
It can also resolve situations where the user has made changes to the router's settings and can no longer connect to the router.

Look at the back of the Motorola WR850G router and locate the reset button. It is a red button located to the left of the Ethernet ports.
Press the reset button on the Motorola WR850G router, and release it immediately to reset the router without changing the settings.
Press the button on the Motorola WR850G router and hold it for longer than five seconds to reset the router to factory specifications.
This setting resets the router's IP address and subnet mask along with the user ID and password you use to log in to the router.

(It worked for me for WR850G, when I had a similar issue. However, don't know how your connection is setup.)

1. Switch-off the ISP modem that connects to the router
2. Switch off the wireless router
3. Now switch on the ISP modem
4. Switch on the wireless router

Motorola WR850G router


Slow speeds is caused by interfearace from cordless phones. 2.4ghz. also could need a power cycle. unplug the power from the back of your dsl modem. unplug the power from your router. shut down your computer. Plug in the modem frist, wait until all lights are green. plug in the router. then when lights are normal on that. turn on your computer. try your connection again. is it slow when you try to acess the router ip address?
