i was giving permission to jump off my friends wireless internet and i`m having a problem connecting to get updates for some reason. if i try to update avg anti virus or my flight sim X it comes up connection failed also when i try to goto windows update i get google instead some pages have what it looks like is a broken page on it and won`t load i also noticed the popups or redirects like i will type in yahoo and i get something else i`m am using Firefox so in ff i have to type the .com or .net

i can get into his router but unless i have to i don`t want to change any thing but i should turn on his firewall but i don`t know if that will mess up an of his connections

this sounds an awful lot like a DNS-hijacker that is part of a rootkit, I'd run malwarebytes anit-malware and superantispyware in safe mode on your system first...
