We have a "laptop wireless net" somewhere close by, how embarrassing. Another SSID is a concatenation of a popular Vietnamese name.

Why the fark "Garage" and why do I only see it when the neighbor's kid is mowing the back? Every time I check, their little push mower doesn't have an iPad strapped to it...

Mine is nothing special, but from my apartment I can see around 25 SSIDs not including my 2 networks. The more interesting are:

"Hot Chick"
"Who is John Galt?"
"poopcave"
"ToCatchaPredatorSurveillenceVan"

I think I'll avoid the last two.

Amazingly with all those networks around, none of them are open and only 3 of them are still on WEP.

I had one named Brown Clown Town at one point. Name your router after a Guatemalan cleaning lady and no one wants a piece of that out in northern Minnesota.

Use this one mom

There's one nearby called LCARS, and while I appreciated the reference it isn't very clever.  If there's someone nearby (or you have a neighbour who wants in on the joke) you name one of yours FBI mobile surveillance and the other does Al Qaeda spy network.  I've seen a ton of funny ones over the years and I know I'm forgetting a lot of really good ones.

I use the classic +++Carrier Lost+++.

There's a guy nearby with "Evilnet"  No idea who it is.

CSB time. Somehow my router reset itself, and in the 10 minutes it was open, a neighbor connected to the router. Checked the DHCP clients table, noticed there was a new computer named "Jenna" on my network. Changed my SSID to "Jenna is a whore" . . . . Left it that way for about 8 months.

A few years back I set my ex's to "Where the Wild Things Are."  Currently mine is "Unknown Pleasures."

When I was living with two other guys and we had four cats between us, ours was called "CrazyCatMen".

My boss had one called "Gutterbunny". When I looked it up and asked him about it, he denied knowing the meaning of the slang.

I WOULD change mine from "CenturyLink1129" to something like "ColoradoWaffleIron", but then I'd have to change it on every wireless device we own. Not worth it.

I have had Icanseeinyourwindows for awhile, but now my neighbor never talks to me and closes her curtains. I need to change it I think. Don't need neighbors thinking I'm creepy.

I once lived next door to a hospital. When I first moved in, before the cable modem was hooked up, I changed the name to hospital name payroll. I left it completely open then unplugged my computer so it was connected to nothing.
 
2013-02-17 11:43:17 PM  
I got two of them
Banjos House of Horrors
Kinokis Reign of Terror

named after our cats...

Fark Rye For Many Whores: Why the fark "Garage" and why do I only see it when the neighbor's kid is mowing the back? Every time I check, their little push mower doesn't have an iPad strapped to it...


garage door is open? Got three wifi routers here, one is in the garage but I leave that one alone it belongs to the ISP. I jack with it and for sure anything that goes wrong is my fault.
 
2013-02-17 11:44:21 PM  
We had an annoying Swiss-German neighbor, so I changed ours to "vogelsheuchefrau," which means scarecrow lady.

Lol, I remember when my neighbor's router was down for a while and they requested access to mine until they got their fixed. After one day of use I randomly kept kicking them out and told them my internet was acting up as well. They fixed their router real fast after that.

I think 'LookOnMyWifiYeMightyAndDespair' will fit in the character limit.

I live in the Hillcrest Apartments. I named my network: "Hillcrest_free_wifi_4_whites_only"
 
2013-02-17 11:48:50 PM  
Mine is "221B Baker Street"

Alas, no interesting names from the neighbors
 
2013-02-17 11:51:15 PM  
Mine is something about DHS Surveillance but I don't broadcast it.

I just checked my neighborhood. There's a lot more than the last time I looked, but nothing really interesting.

I do see an open one with a strong signal though. I'm tempted to drop my internet service.

I probably shouldn't though.

Wow - actually 9 open connecttions although it appears that about half of those are set up as "guest" and also have WPA-2.

3 people are still using WEP? Some people use their full names as SSIDs?

This is what it looks like here. Mine is the top, of course.

I think the Ron Paul guy in the building might be the "Jesus Saves" dude.

Zelron: 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.

Mine has been "we can hear you having sex" for a few years. Not very original but we can, in fact, hear them having sex.

Mine is Harry Ballsanya.
I don't think man or woman would want to touch that wifi network.
