You said you are using your friend's broadband? His connection? Maybe his ISP wont allow you to or maybe he needs to let you access it from his router or computer, however he is running it to you.

Also, don't even use IE, firefox all the way. :P

But honestly, IE has so many problems its not even worth it.
