I can still connect no problem. The status says "Local Only"
That's why I believe it's in the settings somewhere
Is "Only connect locally for wi-fi" a setting? Its gotta be
Name brand of the router?
Mac or PC?
Open up your wireless configuration utility or Windows wireless config utility or Airport if you're using a MAC and tell it to connect to the SSID of your router.
Does your noeghbor have any computers directly hooked up to the router with a cable? Don't try to use an ethernet cable to the router and wireless at the same time.
Maybe buy him a sweet new router for 70 bucks that's not a pain in the ass.
