    ok...I have a dell something or other with windows XP. I have a netgear WG111T wireless usb port adapter. my neighbor upstairs has a wireless router, and kindly gave me his password to use his signal. everything is installed and seems to be trouble free, but when i get connected, i get a 'limited or no connectivity' message. i am currently using another, unsecured signal which initially said 'limited or no connectivity' but is now connected. i am confused and frustrated. I have succesfully connected in the past, by simply unplugging the adapter, and plugging it back in. that no longer helps, and i want to permanately fix this. ya'll helped me get video on my ipod, i hope you can help with this. thanks :D

    Typically using your own connection rather than a neighbors provides for greater signal strength.

    Since sharing like this is against the terms of service for every broadband account I've ever seen or heard of, it falls under our illegal activities guidelines. Please refer to the TSG Rules, we can't help with this issue.
