    I logged in on AirPort Netgear and I went to check my HD and on the right side it shows (for privacy reasons let's call her Mary) Mary's IMACG5 under shared and connected as guest? Does this mean somehow we are connected, could it be one of my neighbors? I hope she can't check my information.

    Yes it does. Although, since she is connected as guest, she should not have access to your info (only the info you allow guests to see).

    Are you using your own wireless connection, or a neighbor's?

    I don't know, I just got this two days ago, to sign on I just click airport or that logo near the speaker volume and Im online. This is the first time it shows her name. I dont own a router in the house either.

    Also how come my macbook never fully charges? It's always at 99% when I turn it on from leaving it charged.

    You're stealing your neighbor's internet from the sound of it.

    Good idea. When you setup your router/internet service, make sure you setup a WPA password, and then tell your neighbor to do the same.

    If you need help just let us know. ;)
