My room mate still uses a old notebook for work, and it sucks having to drop down to WEP to allow him to connect each time. But it seems the notebook is so old It cannot connect to the network when I have WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES] enabled, even though Windows XP recognizes it. If not, I'll have to look into a dual band router.
Either way, I am not sitting in the middle of the city running WEP. No siree.
the simpleist way to solve this issue is for your friend to get him self a good usb wifi adapter wireless G type devices will support your routers setup.
make sure is a brand name like Netgear or edimx. if usb ports are an issue then im sure his laptop would have a PCMCIA card slot so again get a wireless G type card that will fit in the slot.
