Trying to get hooked into my neighbors' wifi...WITH PERMISSION, and all the necessary security information, but I can't find them on the list. I've tried to manually add it, and that hasn't worked either. I'm without ISP for about 10 days until I can get new service started and would love to not have to spend my afternoon's at Mc Donalds. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

if is not on the list, it mean your computer is too far away from the signal.

They may not be broadcasting their SSID and you would have to manually add the info in your wireless config.

If your WiFi device can't see can't see it.
You might try a directional pringle can arrangement.
