Ask your friend to try and change his wifi channel settings to 2.4Ghz as it could be that your laptop isn't compatible with 5Ghz wifi and that might be what his laptop is broadcasting. You should be able to do this by going into the settings utility for his wifi card

Have you been able to connect to the network before or is this the first time you have connected to the network ? Your laptops appear to support the same standards of wireless as one another so I dont think that is the issue. I know you are able to connect phones to his network but do other computers struggle with connecting to it ?

My laptop couldnt see his wifi for maybe 2 years , other friends can connect with no issue .
