The best would be trying to upgrading your router to a new firmware like tomato or dd-wrt which has much better features and your wireless device would start working. that is the one i use and its fantastic.

My friend is at my house and wants to connect his laptop to my network but mine is prtected and i dont know how to turn off the privacy to let him in

Have your friend right click the wireless icon and open the "view available wireless network" on their machine.
(assuming they are using windows wireless, if not there will be an icon in the system tray showing the wireless).
The window that opens will list all available networks.
Choose your network and then click on "connect"
The next window will ask for your "key" (which you should know).
If all is successful, it will "acquire an ip address" and then you will be connected.

My laptop can't find my wireless router

What you can do is power cycle your router first. Unplug the power for about 30 seconds then plug it back in. If that doesn't work, its an interference issue on your router. You can simply change the channel on your router by accessing the router's Setup Page or Admin Page.
