Specs: Macintosh
Sometimes my wireless connection goes away. It just started doing this the last 2 months. I have to get next to my router in order for it to come back. My name will be in the list and so is my neighbors. Why is this?

Enable MAC filtering to block your neighbor but that might not help your connection loss problem.

Do you mean the list of available wireless networks? If so, your neighbor's name is there because he also has a right to run a wireless network.

It may be that your problems began because your neighbor changed broadcast channels and now there is a conflict. First I would reboot the router, but then I would suggest trying a different channel. If there is no better channel I would reflash the router.
