Thank you everybody. I will probably just go to the nearest coffee shop with wireless internet.

I would Not "mess around" with someone else system without full knowledge
about how the connection is done and the way it is authenticated.
There is a very good chance that if you start plug-in in devices that
nothing would work, or there would be changes in the connection that would
Not automatically reversed once you unplug your Wireless router and take it
On the other hand sitting on DSL Connection without any Router is a security
risk even if only one computer is involved.
I would suggest to the person to buy an inexpensive Wireless Router and
install it permanently regardless of your (or other people) visits.

I will be taking my wireless laptop with me to a friends and would like to
know if it is possible to connect to the internet using her highspeed
telephone line connection? She doesn't have a wireless router.
