I have discovered that I can surf wireless with my hp notebook. I set up the connection manually; I am getting a fast connection- but a very weak signal. I believe that this is my neighbor's broadband connection and that he is using a router; therefore I can surf on his connection?? I have firewalled this wifi connection and all ports were found to be stealth. Is there any way to make my signal stronger(without entering my neighbor's apartment)? Anyone with knowledge on this subject, please post. I am a novice on wifi but have considerable knowledge on software, configuration, os, etc When I hold pointer over my connection it says netgear(linksys) signal strength very low,5.5mbps, sometimes 11.0mbps, right now says 2.0mbps.
