You can get a 1 mile long cable and a lot of repeaters.
How exactly did you think you were going to share his connection? Do you have internet access at all?

You can: a) run a mile of cable to his place b) set up a wireless link

Since you are asking this question here, you should really find someone with more experience to help you out in person.

A mile is not a problem with good directional antennas. You need direct line of sight to your friend's place of course.

Hi

The range of a wireless connection is about 100m (328 feet) depending on its signal. Alternatively, you can install a wireless adapter, say, Linksys WUSB54G Wireless-G Network Adapter and hope that one of your nearby neighbours has an 'unsecured' wireless router which is switched on frequently for you to access the internet.
