Hey guys, please help.

I'm currently staying at my girlfriends place and her brother has his computer set up to a wireless internet connection. Is there anyway that I can connect my laptop to this wireless connection and use the internet at the same time?

I tried searching for the wireless network which I found ok and it let me connect to it but then when I tried to connect to the internet my computer kept trying to dial up to the old Tiscali connection I have at home???
After about an hour of trying I had to give up so if anyone can give me some advice I'd be most grateful.

Thanks.

Internet Options > Connections > select "never dial a connection".
