so currently im connected to netgear through airport, which i think is my neighbors router because whenever i open ITUNES, it says RON SMITHS LIMEWIRE and it lists his music and videos.

now...its no problem playing the files..but how do i get them onto my computer? and since i can see his limewire files, when im connected to him, are there any other ways of seeing "what he's got" persay? because thats some like privacy out the drain.

ok then. so im connected to my neighbors netgear, with his consent, and the connection is always very stable. when i open itunes, his files from limewire appear. we want to know how i can get his files onto my computer and vice versa? and what else is possible through a connection like this through airport? we hope to share many files legally

You both need to enable sharing under system preferences and either create usernames for each other or give each other your password

Merged the thread since they are basically on the same topic.
