    i'm with jobeard. Go pay for dsl!

    I pay more on my bus fares in a week than i spend on broadband in a month! Many ISPs will even hand you a free wireless router.

    Besides, any signal gain needs to be actioned both ends. Change the channels, install larger aerial etc.

    This is not a good idea, you need to get your own ISP and pay for the internet like the rest of the world does. True some area's you get it for free but tapping in others networks is not the way to go!

    You could have your neighbor install a signal booster or some directional antennas - I assume he'd have you buy them though and he'd have to set them up at his place.
