    Howdy sam35023...

    That's a tricky question, if the neighbor's device is causing that much interference on the lines, you may be able to go th the FCC and complain, and make the neighbor filter the device...

    Or you may want to goto the local Radio Shack ( if you have one ) and get a few ferrite beads, ( the site explains what they are, and how they work ), and place them around the phone line to the pc to reduce the EMI, or RFI noise on the lines...

    I'd talk to the neighbor and explain to him the issue. It's his problem, and there are hefty fines for not correcting problems like this.

    sounds like the neighbors fence is putting out to mich juice. I get complaints about my high poered radio equipment. At the old office I actually restarted the computer system by just keying down the mike 50 ft away. Of course i have since tuned it down considerably as do not want to damage others property. I would ask the neighbor if he good reduce the voltage and/or amperage on his fence. Sounds like he is trying to keep a herd of elephants

    Plus check with some your other neighbors (If any) and see if they are having the same trouble.

    By far, the most effective place to combat EMI is at the source. I really think you'll have to get your neighbor involved in this effort to be successful.

    It may be as simple as replacing the electric fence control, it sounds like he has one of the antiques that have a coil and a set of points! :)
