dlinklinksysnetgear

I know, not creative but all of them in my area are the default names but locked so i ran with it.

so anyways... enough about that story

Mine is "nubian We Got Internet."

Wi Believe I Can Fi is the one the miss came up with.

"Abraham Linksys"

Mine's just called "Shamu," and my mobile hotspot is "Pants." All the mobile users want in my pants.

Once there was an Optimus Prime in my apartment complex, but now my Protoculture is the only interesting one out there.

Ryan2065: In my apartment complex someone has Hide_your_kids_hide_your_Wifi

That's the best I've seen.


SOCO Lofts?

It is time to change it.

WhippingBoy: Fark, you disappoint.

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


Odd, your post indicates that you both knew you were on Fark, *and* expected wit and coolness. Does not compute.

utsagrad123: I always crack up when I see a WiFi network named "linksys".


  Yeah,  You know you're supposed to pronounce it "link-sees".  All of your linksees are belong to...  my precious linksees...

The one I was most impressed by was:

EVERYONE IN THE WHOLE BUILDING CAN HEAR YOU HAVING SEX

I'm currently leeching internet off "Don't hack me, bro!"
 
2013-02-17 11:04:01 PM
"Free Virus Inside" is in my neighborhood.
 
2013-02-17 11:04:18 PM
FBI surveillance van is fine for a home router, but much more fun for a mobile hotspot that moves around.
 
2013-02-17 11:04:19 PM
Ours is the initials of my bio dad, who is supposedly an IT expert. How the hell you become an IT expert without knowing memes is beyond me. The only remotely interesting one in the vicinity is 'badassmofos'.

I seriously want to change ours to something interesting.

Touché.

You've won this round.

NoFlagNoCountry is ours...and completely misunderstood by our mandatory set of "Y'all Watch This" 'necks on the block.

"Bring beer to #214 for password". Nobody has showed up though. :(

"Urethral Fisting"
 
2013-02-17 11:09:49 PM
mine is just named "dialup"
 
2013-02-17 11:09:52 PM
I didn't get to name our WiFi network this time, but next time I'm choosing "2311 N. Los Robles Ave."
 
2013-02-17 11:10:06 PM

utsagrad123: I always crack up when I see a WiFi network named "linksys".


Me too. It's good I'm not the kind of person who'd try to exploit something like that.

Mine is "spaznet." No, it's not that funny. Shut up.
 
2013-02-17 11:10:14 PM
Mine's been "US Government" for a couple years now, but since I live in the hood I doubt anyone believes it.

We are PuppiesAndCandy.

Our old neighborhood had a neighbor with Dalek. I always wanted to walk up to him and be like, "Hi Dale. Dale K right? How's it going?"
 
2013-02-17 11:13:25 PM
"Free Range Chicken" shows up in my list.
 
2013-02-17 11:13:38 PM
I ended up naming mine Super Karate Monkey Death Car. The passkey is in the same vein, for you Newsradio fans.

EcstaticFlamingo and awesomesauce  are about as fun as it gets around here.  Lynksys, Belkan and Netgear are all represented.  As is one of the service providers, 3 times(!)

/why yes it is a pretty quiet neighbourhood.

I wanted to change from 2wire, but seems like Uverse doesn't let me.  Or I just can't figure it out for some reason.  Keeps telling me to put in the password but what it should be doesn't work.
 
2013-02-17 11:15:17 PM
Here's the best one in my building.

2013-02-17 11:15:28 PM
Mine is Spaceballs: The Access Point.
 
2013-02-17 11:16:59 PM

Zulthar: Mine is 'The Drones Club'

\Not obscure I hope
\\Yeah yeah


Definitely not obscure, but you're a marvel for going old-school.

Best I have in my neighborhood is "TheGiantPennyInTheBatcave". I thought there would be more funny/witty ones, since I live among a lot of undergrads and snarky professors.
 
2013-02-17 11:17:22 PM
"Witness_relocation_DEA_FedID-58571ACX"

"Born Again and Lonely"

sirbissel: utsagrad123: I always crack up when I see a WiFi network named "linksys".

That's what I named my Belkin router...


Heh, my Linksys is named Netgear.

MightyPez: I ended up naming mine Super Karate Monkey Death Car. The passkey is in the same vein, for you Newsradio fans.


MonkeyStrongBowels?

I've seen The Fisherman's Wifi, probably the most amusing.  Mine have been Snow Crash, Looking Glass, and Stranger in a Strange Land.
 
2013-02-17 11:21:21 PM
I can see 11 different 2wire connections.

/I guess all of my neighbors love shiatty DLS
//On the upside my cable connection flys without them jamming up the tubes
 
2013-02-17 11:22:49 PM
I would prefer not to have people even screwing with my 4G cellular access point, so I named the wireless network PASSWORD_SNIFFER. I figure nobody's going to try connecting to that. Maybe I'm wrong, who knows.
 
2013-02-17 11:23:34 PM

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


Now I want to name mine The Luggage.

Or perhaps Hogfather's Workshop.
 
2013-02-17 11:25:47 PM
Mine is "Not_Yours"
 
2013-02-17 11:27:51 PM
We've got a Netgear that has both G and N, I named one "the TARDIS", husband named the other "this is not the wifi youre looking for"
 
2013-02-17 11:28:29 PM
I named one "Cracker Box Palace",  in a pretentious 99% white gated community.
 
2013-02-17 11:28:53 PM
Mine is named Justice League Headquarters.
