I posted this in the Networking section but haven't had a response. Any help would be great

I have a brother who is trying to access his landlords internet connection with permission of course. He installed a wireless Linksys router in her upstairs part of the house. She has a USB connection from the back of modem to her computer. My brother ran an Ethernet cable from back of modem to the wireless router. In my brothers apt. downstairs he bought a USB wireless Ethernet connector. When he ran the CD setup on the landlords computer it said it had to update Windows. (I am assuming it is running Win 98 or maybe even Win 95)
Can my brother do anything from his end to try and get a connection seeing how everything is in place (the router and wireless USB connector on his computer)? the landlord is never home and he has a hard time catching her to make corrections.
Thanks and any help would be greatly appreciated
It is an Optimum cable connection coming into the house if it maters
