Why would your neighbor nextdoor be using your IP?  Open wireless?
You might have thought of that before you kept it open.

You really haven't described what your problem is. . . is seems like
you're trying to get around an IP ban, without giving specifics.  I
don't think it's wise for anyone on this list to give advise in this
situation, given that it isn't a Ubuntu technical question and could
be enabling you to do something malicious.
