Default WiFi help - 09-23-2010, 09:55 PM

I'm moving 120 from where I now live,No Phone or Elec.Yet but still moving lots of possessions.
A neighbor told me to take my mini 9 and leave open router to use his internet connection till I get phone connections.
I know nothing!! I have a mini9 I have the wireless 5530 installed and Broadcom wireless utility.
What is open router?? and how can I get online while there without my own connection?
I sure need help!

I think your neighbor was saying that you could connect to his wireless network, just like you could in a free hotspot. You should be able to see a (I assume) unsecured wireless network nearby, depending on how far away his house is.

When you are there, you will see it in the list of available wireless connections using whatever software is controlling your WiFi radio.
