Have your friend connect to the wireless network with a fake password. With this you will not be able to access the internet but you can get to the router. Go to command prompt and enter the words 'ipconfig' (without the quote marks). Look for the default gateway and type its IP into the browser. A password screen will pop up. Try to use the default admin username and password which you can google for (e.g. user:admin pass:admin). If they have changed the password, then use a brute-forcer to crack it. I recommend Cain and Abel.
Method 2 (May or may not work): Sniffing
Download a tool of the net which will sniff the network for packets and once it has gathered enough the password can be cracked. Why it may not work, you ask? Because even if you connect to the network you might not be able to tap into the data flow.
