Is there any adapter to accomplish an internet access to a cable internet system, without the installation of a wireless router and confusing this man?
Preconfigure the wireless router to have the same SSID at your place, and then he can take it with him to his other place. Simple instruction ; unplug the cable between the computer and the router and plug in the wireless router, instead of the computer. Should you ever go there colour code the cables with electrical tape.

Another option is to buy the iPad and the Verizon Wireless mobile MiFi 2200 Hot Spot at one of the Verizon Wireless stores. I did this last month and am very satisfied with the service. However, like any of these devices, if his summer home is out in the middle of nowhere, he may have reception problems with the hot spot.
The other downside is that then he will have a monthly data charge like you have with iPhone service or a Droid. You must have the data plan in order to use the mobile hot spot that Verizon offers. The device itself is about the size of a credit card but a little thicker. It is battery powered and comes with a wall charger.
You can view the device and the plan on the Verizon Wireless web site.
