    are you using a command line? try defining your ip as

    Code:
    +ip xx.xxx.xx.xx

    you put that in the startup command line.
    i looked over the tutorial, the ip line would go after

    Code:
    srcds.exe -game garrysmod
    so it woud look something like this

    Code:
    srcds.exe -game garrysmod +ip xx.xx.xx.xx
    you can get your isp ip by going here:

    http://ipchicken.com

    Thats the ip you want to have your server use, not the 192.xx.xx.xx
    Not sure what friend runs his server with his internal ip, but that is only used for a lan.

    sounds like a firewall issue.

    If your IP is always changing then you may consider trying to set up a static IP, because if your IP always changes whoever is trying to reach the server will need to get the latest IP address, plus as mentioned you can't use an internal IP no matter what server your running because no one can connect to it unless they're plugged into the same router. I'm not sure this is anything related to the problem i just read through it and from my knowledge the sentences "friend trying to connect" and "my ip keeps changing" usually calls for a red flag on something's part. I'm not a networking or server guru but it's one thing that came to mind you might try.

    something to try if you want:

    good luck
