Check if your laptop is getting IP address from his DHCP server. If none present, set it manually according to his subnet settings.

To check IP: run - cmd - ipconfig /all

If you find ip starting: 169.254.x.x - that means there is no connectivity with his DHCP server and you need to set ip manually on TCP/IP properties of your network adapter.
