You and your friend will need to bridge your connection. Once you do that, computers on your end can get access to the internet and the network.

There is an easy expensive way and a less easy, not much less expensive way.

Easy expensive way is to buy a wireless bridge and connect the output to the input of a wireless router. Linksys WET54G to a WRT54G, for example.

The slightly more difficult, slightly cheaper way is to get a router that can be upgraded with third party firmware. Perform that upgrade, make the router a bridge. Connect the output of that bridge to the input of a wireless router. Connecting a hacked WRT54G to a standard WRT54G.
