I'm not sure if here is the right place to post this. If it's not, I apologize.

For the past week or so, the wireless connection I use has been acting up on me. It'll say that I'm connected to the web, but it won't allow me to view any web pages, no matter what browser I use, and refuses to connect to MSN. I've gone through the troubleshooting process with MSN,and it told me two things were wrong

a. "Your DNS appears unable to resolve IP address."
b. Something about Key Ports.

and then:

"Failed to connect to the service. This could be due to improper proxy or firewall settings. Please review your proxy and firewall settings.Proxy settings can be accessed through Windows Live Messenger Options.For Firewall settings, please see the retailer's instructions."

I've checked and rechecked my firewall settings various times, and even turned the entire thing off.. and it's still not letting me connect.

I've done a little research and found a few other sites and forums where people talked about having the same issue, and sometimes, it was solved by resetting the router.. but that's a little out of the question for me, since the wireless connection I've been using is actually my neighbor's. Understandable if you can't help out because of the "stolen" connection, but hopefully you can. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
