Bridge problem wireless internet shared

Specs: Windows 7, 2.4 quad 2gig ram
OK. Sooo I have a router, a PC and a neighbors wireless router(using with his consent.) The wireless signal isnt all that great and it drops from time to time. During the drop, the bridge then looks to MY router for internet and it will lose the neighbors connection throwing off all internet access killing the net access. I would like so somehow default the internet connection to HIS router as Mine obviously has no internet access... All i have to do to get back on is disable my LAN adapter and BLAM the bridge sees the neigbors router as the internet access and I am back on. I cant log into his router to extend the signal because he is an ego hungry a-*%&. I do not want to move my whole setup to the other end of my place either. Please help me have the bridge only use his router, example- when it drops, i want it to go back to his router when the wireless comes back. Any ideas?

Sooo What purpose is currently filled by your router if you are connecting to your "ego hungry a-*%&" neighbor's internet (with his consent) ?

Does your router support bridging or repeater mode? Since you did not give details of the model number we can only guess.

What you need is a wireless repeater positioned as near as possible to the signal source, to boost reception at your PC.
