Neighbour's router may be configured to set the Channel number automatically, but I don't know why it should always alter to the same one that you're using. Is being on the same channel actually causing you a problem, such as an unstable wireless connection?

If your broadband connection is not secure (your wireless config should show whether it is or not) maybe your neighbour is using it also? Just a thought.
