|I am using a laptop with a usb wifi adapter to borrow internet from my neighbor.|
Does your neighbor know?
If your neighbor knows and you have a deal going with him to do this, try connecting your router to his. You'll have to bridge the connection from your router to his. Once you've done so, then the router can act like a router and you won't have to rely on a laptop to be your "modem".
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
