    In theory, I don't know of anything that would stop you... as long as your system was configured to handle some requests from this connection and some requests from that connection.

    My only question is why on earth would you want 2 different connections at once?

    That is unethical, and actually is probably illegal as well.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    Well I talked to my neibor and we agree to split the bill so there is not a problem there

    Completely different situation, then

    I would make sure that you get at least an email from him, just so you have something in writing if he decides to be malicious for some reason and call the cops...it's good to be anal sometimes.

    In theory I would think it would be possible, but it might be easier to string your wireless routers together into one network, or to just switch configs when you want to use the home network.

    Have you tried just setting the other router as your gateway? You could set that up in the DHCP settings in your router if you don't want to mess with static values.
