Add a wireless connection

I'm paying lots of money for an ADSL internet connection here in sunny Crete, Greece (yup - it's sunny & blue sky). Next door, my daughter has a wireless connection and it can be detected in my house on a visiting laptop. Is there anything I can add to my 7-year old Dell PC that will allow me to share my daughter's connection?

Will using her connection interfer with her usage?
What download speed can I expect?

USB wireless adapter click here

Will it interfere with her usage - it will if you are doing large downloads such as iPlayer
