It's sad the neighbor left their system unsecured.
My neighbor has wireless internet. I discovered this when I brought a laptop home from work and it picked it up right away. I can get onto the internet with no problem at all. Now, of course I had to return the laptop but I have a Dell desktop at home. It is not currently equipped to receive wireless. First off, is it morally/legally wrong to use his wireless connection? And further, what would I need to receive the wireless connection on my desktop? The desktop is a brand new Dell with McAfee firewall and virus protection, which I use for my super slow dial up connection. I certainly do not have the resources to pay $50 a month for a wireless connection myself so if this doesn't work out, I'm keeping my dial-up.
