Default Router Question

My girlfriend has an old Wireless B linksys router set up in her house and its kind of crappy...

Her parents laptop works fine and so does my partition of Ubunto but her two other computers , Macbook and old Dell PC, are having trouble obtaining an IP.

I think the Dell is having trouble because its probably running XP service pack 1 (i forgot to check last night) but I can't explain whats wrong with the macbook....any thoughts?

No the macbook only 1 year max...

For the Macbook, does it have trouble obtaining an IP address while standing right next to the router or are you a couple rooms away?
