No LAN/WAN access with Superscope

I've setup a new scope on my DHCP server alongside my existing scope.  Then I created a new superscope.  The statistics for my superscope show:

Total Scopes 2
Total Addresses 222
In Use 69
Available 153

My first scope is usually fully depleted of IP addresses.
I connected a test laptop and set it to dynamic IP addressing.
It grabbed an IP from my DHCP server on the old scope.
The IP it got was from the address pool on the new scope.
This laptop can't ping a machine on my old scope, and can't access internet.
When I ping the laptop from my machine located on the old scope it gets a response from the laptop name, but with an IP from the old scope that is already assigned to a totally different machine!

I have my router configured with 2 default gateways: the default gateway from the old scope as the primary, and the default gateway from the new scope as secondary.

What am I missing to make the new scope have internet and local network access?
