Maybe you could explain to your neighbour,if you know which one, the issue.It may be they do not know their network is not protected.

Wireless Network Adapters will always show "Available Wireless Networks" in the area. Therefore, any neighbours' networks that are within range will be listed as available to connect to.

If you have inadvertently connected to an unsecured neighbour's network, delete the relevant profile so that your adapter doesn't connect to it automatically in the future.
