device to connect neighbors wifi connection

My neighbor is presently allowing me to borrow his internet so I have my wireless connection from my laptop going through his network.  I obviously have his WPA/WPA2 key which is allowing me to do this, but I wanted to know what device I would need to have his connection intercepted so I can then have an ethernet connection going to my present computer, which does not have a wireless access card?

If you only need to connect the desktop. You could also get a wireless access USB stick. It can be easily installed on the desktop to have wireless access. Such cards are cheap. Have a look at http://www.directron.com/usbwifi.html

You need a network bridge. Tons of choices out there.. Ubiquiti Bullet, Alfa client bridge. It really depends on your distance from the neighbor and how much packet loss you can stand if far away. Could even go Linksys or Dlink etc if not far away with no obstructions.
