    I'm not too tech savvy beyond basic web designing and gaming, so I've got a question for the pros:
    Can I piggyback off my neighbor's open wifi signal with my crappy Belkin N300 router? I know there's got to be a way to program that thing to pick up that signal as a primary and blast it throughout my house. Right?

    What's with all the freeloaders lately? Just get your own internet.

    Oh I'm only freeloading for a few days until the cable guy hooks me up. Just, in the meantime, since the Misses forgot her only responsibility in this move of making sure the internet is setup to be on the day we move in, I'd like to not piss through anymore data on my cell plan. Verizon charges $15 a GB over and I'm already 7 GB over and cringing in horror every time my wife even so much as looks at her phone.
    I was simply looking for a quick fix for a lil bit. I've got homework backing up because I can't get all my research done.

    Do you mean something like Bridge Mode? Belkin should have that.
