What exactly do you think we'll be able to tell you? You say he changed "something", and that it's not working. You give us no details, or any way to troubleshoot the problem.

Also, this is LINUXquestions....if you're having problems with Windows Vista, you should post it on a Microsoft forum.

Moved: This thread is more suitable in General and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.

Can he ping the router? Did you run "ipconfig" to check the network settings?

Rerun the configuration for the device. Sometimes starting over will remove changes you made.
