Okay I'm wanting to share my internet connection with my neighbor who's house is roughly 100ft away. In my house I've got a desktop a laptop or two a home media server and an android phone here and there. In his house a laptop desktop and an xbox360 and an android. Just wanting to know if anyone has any good suggestion on what to buy. Thanks Jeremy

Do you trust your neighbor and there kids or friends? Anything downloaded will be on your IP. Its also no doubt buried somewhere in the Terms of Service that your ISP will frown on this arrangement. Some ISP's may also have monthly bandwidth caps which you could exceed depending on bandwidth usage.

Assuming you already have a wireless access point and your neighbor has wireless capabilities then its as simple as your neighbor joining your access point after you provide the pass-phrase. Your neighbors machine should detect and list the wireless access points in range then its just the correct pass-phrase thats needed to join the network.
