ok so heres the situation. i recently got laid off so there went the cable and internet to save $$. i agreed to split my neighbors internet bill so i could tap into his line and that was the best deal as of yet, 20$ a month for a 5mb line. gotta love it. anyway, after getting boxee for basic tv needs, tvu for nickelodeon-spike-comedy central, and tvants for sports i feel i have a great set of channels all for 20$ a month. now heres where the problem lies, since im connected wirelessly to my neighbors net i limited on where my pc has to be. right now i have a 25foot dvi cable running across the floor so i can watch on my tv. so i guess my question is, is there any way i can set my pc up as a access point withought having to mess with the neighbors router? this way i pu together my other pc as a htpc and use the other for normal pc use? also i was thinking of buying a Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1250 for ota signals, will the remote that comes with it work with boxee?

thankyou
