Hi everyone!

Does anyone know how to fix? I suspect there is something wrong with my friend's laptop.

His laptop is at my place now, I can connect using mine but his laptop simply refuses to work. He wld be getting at private IP when he connects whereas I can get a DCHP IP from the server.

I tried going to the properties of the LAN connection and uninstalled the TCP/IP, reboot system etc but result's still the same.

Any idea what could be wrong ?
