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.

And Death Star...? Dude, I can blow that up with a paperclip in the open port on the backside of your rig, man.


Did you ever use your network name at work? around 1996
 
2013-02-18 12:06:09 AM
Mine is "Free_ATT_WiFi" I changed it from "Porn_Stream"

I share wi-fi with my neighbor who, for some reason, uses the name "slavefeet" for his router.

When visiting friends or family ask to use our internet I just give them a card with the name & password on it and deny any further knowledge of the situation. (Got a really weird look from my mom over that).

Ryan2065: In my apartment complex someone has Hide_your_kids_hide_your_Wifi

That's the best I've seen.


That's the wifi network of my upstairs neighbors here in San Francisco.

Mine is "NakedPicturesOfYourMom". Nobody in their right mind would try to connect to something like that.

as seen near a big ten campus: an OPEN wifi SSID of "hookerwithapenis".

I'm thinking thats a honeypot given the implied nature of the surprise....

I did a wireless survey once in my downtown area. My favorite one was: "ladies ... come to apt 413".

Any Community fans?

Mine is "The Dreamatorium."

I was on a DC to NY bus with free wifi that was always dropping out.  I would publish names like "nice tits in 12B"

Mine is "gonoherpesyphilaids".

Mine (router and slave--big house) are "Hitler died for your sins" and "Vomit Patrol".

Our neighbors have super loud dogs that, pending an appeal, will be taken away by the city soon. I'm thinking of naming each wifi signal after their dogs to be an asshole.

SJKebab: I set up "Sailing in the seas of Wifi" a while back, I figured only my mates would get a little chuckle out of it.  A few months later, a neighbour changed his to "Jerry was a Wifi Driver".  Had a few beers with the guy since.

Taco_Hell

I know, hardly an original name, except this was at a Taco Bell store. That's what made it funny. New manager came in and within a few days there was no more unsecured wi-fi and it was changed to some boring corporate name.

Don't seem to be able to change it to ANYTHING, even something uncreative.

If someone has any recommendations/advice on how to change it ... Much appreciated.

Cyno01: 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.


So when I surf to 192.168.1.1 to access the interface, will it look like a Netgear router page, or a Linksys page?

If the former, you're clever. If the latter, I hope someone touches your routing tables in a naughty way.

I use banana revolution as the guest wifi, and my 'private' one is named after the store down the street.

Ugh, you're right.

Who is the gaytard who named his network "TheMatrix"?

My Ex had ours set up as Skynet for the longest time.  The last time I stopped by his place and tossed the last of his stuff on his door step he still had it set up as Skynet which my phone instantly connected too.

/no I don't know why your router says "Single Gay Guy in Apt 2B"

In the coffee shop nearby I used to see "you are now manually breathing" every once and a while.  thought that was clever.  made me notice I was breathing.

EigenPuff: That's the wifi network of my upstairs neighbors here in San Francisco.


Austinoftx: SOCO Lofts?

Good lord - overplayed meme is overplayed.

In my old apartment complex, in my building, someone had "cocklover" and someone had "pornstar".  My old boss used to live upstairs from me, he gave me my first AP and helped me set it up.  His name is Chuck, mine is Mike, the AP became "MikeD".  As in "Chuck and MikeD to my dismay...."

18 APs visible from my computer (aside from mine).  2 use WEP, 3 unsecure (and the weakest signals of them all).  Most interesting names:  "Bad_Jaz", "lovejazz", "BlueHillary", "NCC-1701D", "crump", and "Downton"

My wifi network is called 'A', and is always at the top of the list wherever I go.  I like that.

A number of you have way more interesting neighbors than me. It's been disappointing.

When I'm out traveling, "linksys" is the one I like the most.

Mine have traditionally been references to Neal Stephenson books, i.e. "Uncle Enzo's Cosa Nostra Pizza", "Semi-Autonomous Guard Unit #A-367", "Dogpod Grid", "Lord Alexander Chung-Sik Finkle-McGraw", "The Concent of Saunt Orolo".
Getting time to rotate it again and I'm thinking of branching out with "SCORPION STARE", "Loki Stormbringer", "Valhalla Sector", or "Deep Space Radar Telemetry"

I really enjoyed Cryptonomicon but just could not get into any of his other novels.

How about "SURVEILLANCE_DRONE_CONTROL_NODE_14B35"?
