Did your friend keep a copy of the network settings before he changed them? If you can get those settings that would be the quickest way to revert back and gain connectivity once again.
Otherwise we will need to manually check the settings. From the start menu, click "Run" and type in ncpa.cpl which will open the Network Connections control panel. Then right-click on your Wireless Network Connection and choose Properties. Then highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and select properties.
Please let me know what you see here, whether it is set to automatic or if there are numbers manually typed in. For now, don't change anything, just close/cancel back out and report back.

Thank you very much for getting back to me. My friend did not keep the setting and he is not really that good with computers but better than me anyway !
I did as you asked and under the General tab the ' Obtain an IP address automatically is highlighted. There is no info there. On the second section the ' Obtain DNS server address automatically' is highlighted. Once again there is no info there either.

Just some more info that might help. I brought my laptop to the office with me this morning and have managed to connect to an unsecure network ( linksys). The strength is excellent but I still cannot connect to any sites like Google, Skype etc etc .

Just wanted to let you know that I managed to get connected. I went to the start menu,my Network Places,Set up a new Network and then just followed the prompts from there doing everything manually. I re-entered the Router name, the WEP key and it worked after that. Thanks again for trying to help.
