Default Internet Problems

I'm 15 and my parents recently decided to enforce a new rule. They are now unplugging the modem after 10P.M.. This is making me very mad because i usually stay up till 11 on the computer then go to bed. I was wondering if there are any ways around this. I have a Wi-Fi card but i can only get 15% signal from my neighbor and that is not enough to connect. Any suggestion are useful (besides go to bed at 10 )

I'n not sure if this will work, but maybe if u bought another cheap modem you could wire it for your computer.

Some other forum member could help with that

If you are 15 and still living with your parents then there isn't really a lot that you can do if they want to unplug there modem at 10 pm. If you want to get your own ISP connection and pay for it all on your own that is another issue, but that would have to be brought up with your 'rents.

As for piggy backing off the neighbors wireless signal, do they know that you are doing it? Because it isn't a good practice to get into. Just a thought.
