Can you point your friend here:
http://privacy.getne...browsing/tools/

He is probably not allowing first party cookies.
Sometimes a misconfigured firewall can be causing these problems as well.

If the router has a hardware firewall it could be misconfigured.
But I don't think that will be the problem. Software firewalls are more likely to block the cookies that are needed to be remembered.

Maybe you can have them try a different browser like Opera or Firefox and see if that works?
