You are still using your neighbors internet bandwidth that they are paying for.

I don't think so, as long as it is unsecured, you can use it. If they had it encrypted, and you broke into it, then THAT would be illegal. It's the same as going to Starbuck's and using their wireless.

(And even if it is illegal, if they're not smart enough to secure it, I'm sure they won't notice you're there)

That's like saying, it's ok to go into someone's house if they leave the door unlocked and use their stuff. Starbuck's is different, that's a service they provide for their customers.

In New York, there's no specific law against it. The federal law is that you can't use it without your neighbor's permission. The definition of permission is not defined though. In some states, like California, it's specifically outlawed. But here in New York, if there was a case, you would probably win.

It is Illegal in some states if you want to break it down. And common sense.

Your stealing their connection. Just like getting free cable. But your getting free Internet. If they find out, they will report you. But depends on how nice they are. Just ask them, and maybe offer to pay half of the price.

My opinion.
