A "house above" you???

You should tell your brother to secure his network because somebody is trying to use his bandwidth and ISPs frown upon that.

Since you have no wireless hardware in that IPCONFIG, exactly how are you planning on connecting wirelessly?

You might also disable ICS on your configuration, that can't be helping.

He said that because if you look at your TCP/IP settings that you posted, it does not contain a wireless card.....we can only see Ethernet. And the IP of 192.168.0.1 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and no gateway makes it look like you have ICS set up.

"we live in the same house"

That's the confirmation (that this is legal) that I was looking for. Thanks.

To disable ICS: in Network Connections right click on whatever connection is doing the sharing - Properties - Advanced tab - uncheck 'Allow other network users to connect ...'.

I don't understand that "Ethernet adapter Network Bridge:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
Description . . . . . . . . . . . : MAC Bridge Miniport". Do you have some kind of bridge set up in Network Connections?

As the others have said, we can't see any hint of wireless in your ipconfig /all so maybe your wireless switch was off or the connection is disabled. With either of those conditions I can not understand how you see any wireless network in 'available networks.'
