dont think i want to get rid of the neighbor's ....since it's faster i might want to use it for large downloads ...

Don't do that without your neighbor's permission.

Depending on where you live, it may be a criminal offense. Where I live (Michigan), it's a felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

See here for the details of a case that was prosecuted under this law:

If you really need a faster connection, why not just pay for it? When I upgraded my connection speed from 6 mbit/sec to 12 mbit/sec, as I recall my monthly bill went up just $5 or $10.
