You can steal somebody DSL Connection only by tapping the phone line. There is no other way for DSL connection. Also, you can not connect Two DSL modem on same line! If he have wireless router at home, than you have problem. You should put some security with WPA or WEP key in your router Settings.

Your brother should call Internet Provider and ask for new password.

If he have problem with slow internet, use Virus, Spyware and Malware Removal forum for help.

Are you using wireless? If no, then probably not.

Certain routers allow you to check if there are devices connected to your network.

My Cisco router for example, comes with a software that lets me see the whole network. I can kick devices out from the network, but that won't be necessary. Because I have MAC address filtering + a complex WPA2 password + disabled SSID broadcast. Which is secure enough.

Like me, you can use some of the router's security features, MAC address filtering, WPA2 encryption (if you have it), disable SSID broadcast and you should be fine.
