hi, for your neighbor, you should more or less get his laptop set up to use your linksys AP while he is at your house. use the best encryption that you can, and set your AP to only allow the MAC addresses that you want to allow. take the neighbor's laptop back to his house, and if it doesn't work, he may need to get an external antenna. these are really basic wifi use issues, and not part of what is about. you may or may not be violating the terms of service for your ISP in doing this.

when you say 'get started' if you mean wardriving, a good first step would be to read every post in this forum. to do it right, you need a portable computer/PDA/laptop/cellphone, a wifi card and a GPS.

Is this a next-door neighbor? The farther the distance, the harder it is to do.

Most laptop antennae, especially those on PC-Cards are horizontally polarized, so if you have a dual antenna AP like the Linksys WAP11, you can set one antenna horizontally, and perpendicular to the direction of your neighbor. If that doesn't do it, things will get much more complex.

You can normally increase (or diminish) your signal quality. On the off chance that this is as of now at greatest there isn't much else you can do there. Usually wifi can reach up to 150ft, anyway walls and machines will cut this distance drastically. ... -paper.php
