shanrick: If my neighbors wifi is unsecured, should I do them a favor and secure it?
Dawnrazor: "Link's Sis"
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...
Lincey: 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.
Zulthar: Mine is 'The Drones Club'\Not obscure I hope\\Yeah yeah
NameDot: garage door is open?
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.
