It appears that I will be sharing the internet with my neighbor.. but the thing is that he has wireless internet. Im just confused as to what to get.. do i need a wi fi car, or a wireless router?? Can anyone help!? Links to the products will be much appreciated, thanks.

Well, any wireless card should work. Keep in mind that speeds on wireless are not as great as using a cable. Are you guys both in separate apartments and close like that or in separate houses?

Its a separate house, the houses are attached, and i believe its the room right behind my rooms wall..

that was my next question, how slow will the downloads speeds be?? I believe his cable speeds are 15 down 2 up.

im looking at this, and idk..

if you get G standard card, actually transfer speed will be about 2-4mb/s

Yeah, if it's only a wall separating you guys, wireless will be fine. I can download stuff at ~2MB/s on my laptop, no problem.

A signal booster may be useful.
