What kind of signal strength shows when you connect with the laptop? If it's low, chances are it's a neighbor's signal. Are you prompted for a password to connect? If you know how to access your router (, change it's frequency to ANYTHING BUT channels 6 or 9 (defaults from most mfgs.). Then encrypt your signal. Does this help?
