AOL default PC used on BT connection problem?

I have my Sister-in-law's Dell with AOL broadband as the ISP. She has been using a speedtouch 330. I am trying to correct a few errors on the PC and need to use my BT broadband connection to update some programmes. I half expected that on connecting the RJT cable to my BT Hub that it would be recognised as such. NO such luck. The PC has Macafee Security on it, and whereas she has a subscription that expires in 2011, she never activated that subscrition. I am trying to figure out if Macafee itself is stopping the connection or is it something else.
Anyone out there with suggestions. I feel sure that I am missing something very simple.

Sorted - Not quite sure how.
