Your wireless STB is registered to your account, will not work on a different account.
To try what you are suggesting, the neighbor would need to add a wifi STB to his account on his WAP and then give it to you to try in your unit using his service

The WAP should already be directly connected to the RG via an Ethernet cable.
Attempts to connect WAP to pc, will not work.
May connect WAP to gig switch that the pc is also connected on with switch connected to RG providing signal.
