If you can freely enter their computer, you can leave a text file on their desktop saying what you need to say (not sure if this is illegal though). But be careful though, your neighbour may be very angry with you and think you're doing malicious things on his/her computer.
Ever see that episode of "Corner Gas" where Emma and Davis tell Oscar the Internet Police is after him? You can probably do that!
When you say that your computer connects to their router first, do you mean that you'd have to click on the AirPort icon and manually choose your network? I get that with my computer. Most of the time, I always connect to a neighbour's router and I have to change it back. It's too bad AirPort doesn't have a default network to connect to first.
In case you need to know, I'm using a rev d Powerbook G4 1.67 GHZ 2GB ram OS 10.3.9
Agreed with HowEver. If your Mac is automatically connecting to someone else's network right now, it'll get even more annoying if you get that person to apply a password. (You'll probably get a spinning beach ball before a message like "There was an error connecting to ________".)
So it's best to fix things by configuring your own network settings properly. Don't worry about the neighbours.
If anything, you'll know the neighbours' brand of routers by way of their leaving the default name untouched, usually (linksys, SMC, etc.). Those routers have default webpage admin pages, google search for name of router and default web admin page, often with 'difficult' logins like "admin" for username and a blank password. Resetting them to a username and password of your choice ensures you'll be able to login until they do a master reset of the router. Of course you should *never* do this. These people are your *neighbours.*
But if your DSL goes down, for example, and their cable internet remains available...
Your task for this afternoon or evening is to add some punctuation. I'd be happy to apply my limited but perhaps sufficient knowledge, if it was less painful to decipher your post. LOLERZ, btw, I get.
