BigmountainVMD First of all... does the neighbor have a all-in-one modem + router? Or are the modem and wireless router separate?

If they are separate, do you get internet access when you hardwire to the neighbors router through one of the (usually 4) hardwire access ports?

If that works, then it would be in the settings.

You can access those by using the ethernet cord coming out of the "internet" port of the router, ie. the cord that connects the modem to the router. If you pull the ethernet cord out of the modem, and put it in your comp, you should be able to access the router settings through your web browser to figure out what is going on.

It's never time to get a mac...

TT, as long as your comp sees and connects with the neighbours router, then your pretty close.

The DNS server issue mentioned couple be it.

Here's another possible solution:

- enable wireless and connect to his router
- open the start menu and run "command" or "cmd" (on Win XP you'll have to hit "run" then type "command" and hit enter)
- This will open up a DOS/Command prompt
- Type "ipconfig /release", hit enter, and let it run
- Type "ipconfig /renew", hit enter and let it run
- If it works, you'll have the internet back, if not take a screenshot of the results and email me
-either way type "exit" and hit enter to close the command window

There is a button right beside the power button that has a satellite dish on it.
It kills my wi-fi, it's on right now & I haven't turned it off then back on. just cause in my Network & sharing center it says I am connected, only locally.

To add to the confusion, last night & this morning I was able to get my pc's built in wi-fi to connect "locally & internet". When I opened Firefox, it would say connection timed out. I was never actually able to get on the internet even though it said I was connected?

Wasn't until I plugged the usb D-link, that I was able to get on.

I don't know, @ least it's workin' for the moment.

My laptop shutdown about 4 days ago & when it started back up it said the hard disc failed. Second restart & it started fine, since then nothing.

It was hard wired @ the time, would that have something to do with my wireless?

Noreaster Timmy, try to type in a web browser this IP address and see if you can get Google web page: 173.194.75.94

If you can see Google then your DNS settings aren't set up correctly. In that case try to get the IP address of your neighbor's router and put that number as a DNS server address in your TCP/IP settings.

ShredLife i hope it doesn't happen, but if this thread was the last thing we ever saw from timmy it'd be pretty funny in itself...

slyder I wonder if your creepy roomate set up the connection as a wifi through his computer?
Did he ever access your computer. He may have set your computer to route through his to the internet.
