Assuming that the wifi is not secured, it could be a router problem on your neighbor's end. Or maybe their internet isn't working right.

That's just my guess.

Sounds like you're using Vista, in which case I would suggest trying ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew from the command line. And if that fails you, try deleting the access point from your list of wireless networks (by going to Network and Sharing Center in the Control Panel and going to Manage wireless networks on the left) and connecting to it again.
