    Unless she got a promo that includes several months of an ISP or something like Free NetZero, then it sounds a lot like she is leeching from a neighbor. Have you asked her?

    Yep. It amazing how many people think their computer comes with Internet because they have integrated wifi and have no clue how the Net actually gets to their computer.
