Depending on where you live….you could have LOTS of WiFi networks and some of those will be hidden (I.e. the SSID isn’t broadcast). This doesn’t mean that there is anything malicious going on…that’s how WiFi works.

First of all slow down and use punctuation. Like, omg, it’s annoying.
Second of all- are you assuming there is a virus based *solely* on the fact that a wireless network has been detected? Because it is *supposed to* detect nearby networks….
If it connected automatically, then you’d have a problem. If your antivirus said it found something, then you have a problem. But simply detecting a nearby network (likely one of your phones if nothing is close) is not a virus.

Is his computer wifi sharing? Because I Trojan that creates a hidden wifi network would only be effective if the attacker was within range and your brothers computer would probably have a record of devices connected if that were the case

A fresh install makes an adhoc network?
