More about wifi working routers
  1. 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 !
  2. Is there a password that needs to be put in?
  3. Best answer
    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
  4. I got round to there house and it had saved the password. After re-entering it connected

    Thanks
