Default So I Hijacked My Neighbors Network.

I don't get whats going on right now. My Router Connects to my wireless computer, my pda, but nothing can see anything. All I get is it saying its connected. So Right Now, I hijacked my neighbors network, Goes pretty decent, slower than mine, but still ok.

Anywho, point of the post.. Anyone have any ideas why i can connect to my router but not get online?

It's a Linksys, and everything should be working, but it just stopped. And its not the internet, because cable works. =\

Just because cable TV works, doesn't mean the Internet is working. I am giving the benefit of the doubt that you have already power cycled the modem, and the router. When you say nothing can see anything..... are you refering to they can't see each other, or just can't get online?

I'd go tell your neighbour he/she needs to secure their network.

I would do that, and then tell them how much I'll charge them to do it.
OR
I would constantly download torrent files all day.

Probably option 1.

Just because you're connected to some random wireless router in the neighborhood, doesn't mean that the wireless router is actually a gateway to the internet. Not all people use wireless routers to route internet traffic.
