Nothing beats my mother-in-law asking for the password to get connected to Mike Hawk.

NFA: SilentStrider: NCIS surveillance van.


FBI was too cliché

DEA surveillance van is the best in my opinion


I just go with "Surveillance Unit #6".

Meh. The name has nothing to do with security.  You put some thought into naming babies and pets, not appliances.

My wi-fi is hidden but named "Discworld".

I just checked my neighbors' wi-fis and someone named theirs, "12345" I swear I'm so tempted to spend a few minutes to see if I can guess what the password might be on that.

I've been known to use Skynet as well.

Pffft, amateurs... I prefer to encode my cute messages in the MAC address.  It works even when your device does not have a SSID.

Big Man: There's a Quizno's in downtown St. Louis owned by a middle-eastern person. You can join the "Jihad" there. I have a feeling it's the design studio above them though.


There's still an open Quizno's? Wow.
 
2013-02-17 10:43:01 PM  
I have one SSID that is simply "I_read_UR_email".
 
2013-02-17 10:43:16 PM  
Back when WiFi wasn't common and setting up the network wasn't exactly plug and play I set up a test AP to figure out all of the settings, the SSID I used was a play on the word "test": testicle.  To this day my home WiFi APs all have the SSID "testicle"

German Embassy is mine.
No one close enough to see it though.

Not exactly on topic, but my sis-in-law thought her neighbors were using her wi-fi and she asked me to lock it down.  Logged onto her laptop, got into the router, changed the name, locked it up, and checked that I could still connect to it.

I could connect, but every couple of minutes it would lose the connection.  So I asked her where it was so I could check it.  It turns out HER router was unplugged, she'd been using her neighbor's wifi, and I'd just locked them out.  They must have been power cycling it to fix the connection.  So I set it back how I found it and locked hers down.

Oy.

Fark, you disappoint.

I expected some really witty and cool network names. Instead I get a bunch of lame, high-school calibre crap.

I named mine "I.C.E."

It's a Netgear WNDR3400, a freebie when I signed up for cable internet.

Hmm.  Just checked and it looks like one of my neighbors is running an unsecured WIFI HP print server...

I just changed mine to Fluttershy's Cottage


until i can come up with something more clever, it will have to do.

Maybe "I have the cheapest bandwidth option" ?

I have a neighbor who has "WE CAN SMELL YOUR WEED"
