May be their router has limited users restriction. Or may be all the devices running on their router have their IP fixed and the DHCP is switched off !

More details are required !

Have he ever been able to connect to the routers wireless net on that computer?

Some things to try
- See if the SSID is saved with a wrong password under Wireless network on the computer, this would make the computer try to connect to the router but if the password is saved and it´s wrong the authentication will fail and you cannot connect.

- Is the router or computer old? Can be kryptation errors, try removing the kryptation from the router and connect with the computer after
