Does your friend have proxy enabled on the network, if so, you might not be able to browse even if you get an IP address. Also, try to ping the gateway at your friends cafe from your PC, just to make sure it is the right IP you are connected to.


cheers

Are other nearby wifi signals present? If so, they may be sharing the same channel. Use a program like "netstumbler" to see what channels others are using. IF there are other, nearby router signals on the same channel, advise your pal to change channels on his router to anything other than channels 6 or 9 (most commonly used mfg. defaults).
