If he enabled WEP or WPA, then his neigbours would get blocked from their network, and would figure it out.

Default Re: neighbors wireless connection unsecured.....

ok, let me rephrase that, i wouldnt get busted if i set it up with wep or wpa. Its called social engineering. Tell them you are securing it, which you actualy are...but you still have access. Its pretty simple...especialy if they are neighbors. And on top of having the connection secure for your use, you can make money securing it...its a win win situation
