Sorry, correction was he has no access to the router. It's a free
connection (I suspect off of a neighbors router), so he has no ability
to access the router.

I don't think a crossover cable will work without something telling the
system to pipe data from the wireless connection to the nic port, but
thanks anyway :-)
