My wireless has been connecting to a neighbors!!! Help!!

My wireless connection is super slow lately and when I click on the internet icon, it says I'm connected by way of Belkin, which i do not own. Could this be a neighbors? I have a MacBook. How do I get it to connect again to ours and stay? It stays for about a day and then ends up connecting to this Belkin which obviously is strong enough for the laptop to try to connect but week enough that takes a very long time. The modem is in another floor connected to a desk top which works very well, but trying to connect the laptop on another floor of the house won't work.It used to We have had no problems for a few years and this problem is new. We have nothing new, just this recent problem out of the blue.

First you'll need to change channel on your wireless router so you can boost more signal (use 1,9, or 11 on channel). Then on your Mac make sure you only have the name of your wireless network set there. Contact your router manufacturer to assist you on how to do that or Mac.

No data internet connection


Connecting to the Internet without a Wi-Fi data plan isn't a difficult process even for a novice at utilizing and joining wireless networks. Whether you are looking to join a public Wi-Fi hotspot network or a neighbor's private Wi-Fi network with their permission, get your computer online and browsing the Internet without the use of your own Wi-Fi data plan, saving money in the process. Note these steps to get you connected in just a few minutes.

Move to an area that offers free public Wi-Fi or to an area where you believe you are close enough to pick up a neighbor's Wi-Fi signal. In the latter case, check with your neighbor beforehand to ensure it is allowed that you utilize their Wi-Fi network. Using a private network without permission is illegal. Boot up your laptop. Allow Windows or the Mac operating system to load up fully on the laptop. Click on the wireless icon on your computer's desktop area. In Windows, you will find this icon on the right side of the bottom toolbar. It appears to be a computer monitor icon with small radio waves reaching out of it. Alternatively, on a Mac laptop click on the Wi-Fi icon on the top right toolbar in the desktop area. This icon will look like a set of radio waves extending upward. Look over the list that appears once you click on the wireless icon. This list will present all the wireless network options that are within the range of your laptop. Avoid any that present with a "lock" icon beside them, because these require passwords. If you are looking to join a password-protected network like one offered by a neighbor, request the password ahead of time. In the event of a public network at a local business, a password will not be required. Click on the network you intend to join. Input the appropriate password at this point, if joining a password-protected network. Also, choose the type of security encryption the private Wi-Fi network is using. Your computer will often have this auto-selected, but you may need to select either "WPA" or "WEP" security manually. Click "Enter" on your keyboard. If you do not have the necessary password or are unsure as to the security encryption type, either contact the network administer or click "Cancel" and join a public Wi-Fi network. Allow several moments for your computer to join the network. You will receive a notification on your Windows or Mac toolbar when it does. Launch your Internet browser of choice and begin utilizing the Internet without having to rely on your own Wi-Fi data plan

Hi, im using a brand new acer asprire x1800 desktop..and i can HARDLY connect to the internet using SUN BROADBAND (lan connection already disabled). i have been using the broadband for a few months now....


There could be several possibilities for your internet connection to slow, or stop functioning. Here is a small list of things to check:

1) Run Spybot Search & destroy:
This is a program that will help you find, and eliminate malware, it's free from Here. It also helps speed your PC up by removing unwanted malware that can drain your system's resources.

2) Check your scheduled tasks to determine nothing is set to run during these " down " times.

3) Check to make sure any wireless connections are secured using WEP or other such wifi security. It's a little known fact that people will " pigy-back " on someone's wifi connection to use the internet and download. this can cause internet instability.

4) Call your Internet Service Provider. Your ISP can usually help you determine if the problem is with your computer or their connection.

5) Check your network settings. Your ISP can help you determine the best settings for your connection, as well you may check to see if the network device has an updated driver from the manufacturer.

6) If all else fails, you may wish to take your PC to a licensed technician, or replace the network device if you feel it is faulty.

In my experience most internet instability that happens on a regular basis during a set amount of time is due to malware, or scheduled downloads.

Can't connect to the internet!


depending on the browser you are using, go to tools>internet options and make sure that there are no proxy settings inserted in your browser to connect. removing all previous settings might just help. Also try right clicking on the wireless connection icon go to properties and check in tcp/ip settings if you have entered any settings. if there are any settings, remove them and try connecting to the internet.

Wireless connection


There are so many possibilities.. The range or distance might be the trouble.. Is the neighbor using a notebook? If so, move the pc to within a few meters of the wireless router, to see if you get a signal. There are lots of other things you can try.. There is detection software to see available networks Eg 'netstumbler', can be downloaded free.. Your router might be setup in such a way, that it limits number of connections or by MAC address.. So you might need to change the configuration in the router. Mostly you can go into the router config. via a web browser like IE (Internet Explorer), just by typing in the IP address of the router.. But you might need to know the IP & user ID & password (if there is one).. So.. you can see there are a lot of things to be done, if you want to solve this problem..

Also here is a possible fix from another user on Fixya.. (to be carried out on the neighbor's pc)

you may have another wireless connection other than your own set as automatic, or more than one connection in your settings of the same name, so right click on your network icon in your task bar or in network connections in device manager and select view all wireless connections, click on it and when all the connections show, highlght, delete all of them, then close the window.

Your notebook should now indicate that it found new wireless connections, click on the popup and select your connection name and click connect, at this point you will be asked to enter the passkey if you have security enabled.

give it a go.. might help. Let me know if you want further help.

Computer disconnects from Internet when my neighbor is using his computer


the Lock means that he has a secure network or he has the WAP enabled.. Can the two networks interfere? Yes. The two networks will "fight" over which one will your computer use to connect.. and sometimes you will connect to his network and therefore get no internet or limited connectivity.. You can make sure that your computer only connects to your network by permanently removing his SSID from your settings.

No internet connection on two desktops


Hi Tony, you think your laptop is connecting to your neighbor's wireless network. So try this.
1:Go to Control Panel, click on network and internet connections, double click NETWORK CONNECTIONS. Point your mouse to the WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTIONS. It should show that you are connected(and it will show the name of the network that you are connected to). If you do not recognize the name of the network that you are connected to then you are connected to your neighbor's network.

IF YOU ARE CONNECTED TO linksys--unsecured wireless network, there is a chance that your wireless router is not functioning at the moment.

Try this first and i will be waiting if you have a follow up problem.


Good Luck
