Wireless Router question

I am helping a friend set up a wireless Linksys router/switch. One computer is wireless and the other uses a Ethernet cable plugged into the router. For some reason, when the computer using the cable is NOT turned on, the wireless laptop cannot see the Internet. It says it is getting signal from the router but it can't see the internet. When the wired computer is on, the wireless computer works fine.

They have a cablemodem and the wired computer was origonally the only one on it before the router was installed.

Anyone know what could be causing this and a way to solve it?
