    I am sorry that i am new to the forum and i am least knowledgeable of the rules of this forum. But i found my thread closed, i just want to clarify your misunderstanding that, I never said that i am using this connection from my neighbor ILLEGALLY, I said we share the connection.
    How can it be illegal when we pay for what we use?? All of our neighbours pay for the connection they use. Is it illegal to use the WIFI connection with the permission of the person who is providing it??? If so its a new knowledge for me and i withdraw my thread.

    yes it is , as the person is breaking the terms of service they have with the ISP

    hence the reason for closing the first thread

    do you have permission from the ISP to share between the houses

    Wayne quoted the rule in your closed thread. It includes

    It seems to me to be a pretty simple extrapolation to understand that we will not assist you in assisting the person with the internet access in breaking the ISP terms of service.

    Well i don't know about such a rule by ISP. But 1 thing i am sure that the ISP's know that people share when they live together. As i said we live in a villa, so its not that we are in different homes. And more over what is the use of Wifi then??? If a person has a wifi modem and he is the sole user to use it, then there is no point for him to give access to other user whom he wish to share.

    Anyways i am not forcing anyone to reply my query if the rules and regulation doesn't allow. I just don't understand the rule you are talking about the ISP. Then how do companies share their internet connection in the same building using WIFI modem, when one of the company has given access to use their modem for charge, its a share. I have seen many such scenarios, and the rules you are saying is completely new for me.

    so you are all in one house and only have one set of utilities - for water/electric/gas etc for the whole complex and share - is that correct

    This forum is owned and operated in the US and follows US laws and customs. While I doubt you did it deliberately you let us believe you are in this country, where the term "villa" is not commonly used and where "neighbor" means a different household.

    Can you give us a link to the ISP's terms of service where is indicates that service is for a villa?

    Either they have a commercial service that allows that or they violate the terms of service until they are caught.
