Websearch "cantenna". You're going to need either highly directional antennas, or increased signal strength, or both, on one or both ends of the connection.

400 yards? I just don't see that happening with a home wireless router. There may be an amplifier/signal booster out there that will do it, but I've not seen one.
I think your brother is just going to have sign up with one of the Internet providers, or, move into your house.

USB wireless adapter(and extension cable for optimum positioning) or desktop adapter(PCI) with external antenna.
But 400 yards!!
Position the antennas in front of the window in a direct line of sight and hope for the best.
There are also a lot of Ibles on antenna boosters(WokFi and wind surfer)
check out freeantennas.com.
