What I would try first would be to go to accessories, system tools then to system restore. Pick a date just prior to your changes to the net, that should put things back as they were before he tried the changes.

Since the system connected with dial-up and not with the high speed, I would suggest resetting the IP address by disconnecting the modem for about 30 se., then rebooting the system. It should then connect to the internet.

He is trying to get it back onto his hi speed and dump the modem.

Remove the dial up connection by right clicking on it in network connections and choosing remove, than set up a new connection using LAN.
