If you're one of the millions of people with FBI/DEA/INS/CIA Surveillance Van 3 for your wifi, you should be changing the van number every few days.

Swoop1809: Mine is A Series of Tubes


That is also mine, I thought it was really clever, and when I saw this thread I was certain someone else on here would have it. Surprised it took 200 some comments for it to come up. I still love it though,  Currently connected to a series of tubes

Onyx Serpent: Miss Stein: I didn't get to name our WiFi network this time, but next time I'm choosing "2311 N. Los Robles Ave."

I have to wonder if using that would confuse the people around here  -- I live near a section of S. Los Robles Ave.


2311 N. Los Robles Ave. is the address of the apartment building that is home to Sheldon Cooper, Leonard Hofstadter, and Penny Nolastname of The Big Bang Theory.  In real life it doesn't exist; N. Los Robles ends at the 2100 block.

A co-workers of mine was 'JankNegress'

He changed it after I had to tell him the meaning of 'Jank'...

Yeah, so I learned from Googling.  I just happen to live a ways south of the freeway from where it "should" exist.  Though unfortunately not far enough south to where the number would almost match.

Ha! It'd be hard to convince the hubby to go with that, though. I'm thinking of something fun and nerdy, since I'm taking the CCNA course and am learning a lot of nifty terminology.

Mine is "Crackers", a nickname I've given to my wife, as in "I wouldn't kick HER out of bed for eating Crackers."... So it's an inside joke that nobody else will figure out, but it's also evidence that I've got a really cool wife.

Zulthar: Mine is 'The Drones Club'

\Not obscure I hope
\\Yeah yeah


Bertie!

My father and I are huge P.G. Wodehouse fans. One year for his birthday I got him the Jeeves & Wooster box set. We just vegged in front of his new TV and we could not have been happier. There is nothing like seeing the Drones have a rugby scrum indoors.

To the original topic: my cell's wifi is "billionaire pr0n", which no longer seems as smart after reading this list. I was eating brunch at the foot of the Hollywood Hills (Pinches on the Strip, not the dysfunctional one in Culver City) and assuming that one of the wealthy people in the hillside mansions was peeping on us with our normal lives. There would be a guy in front of his telescope, furiously cranking and muttering, "he's eating eggs with salsa! Oh god yeah, yeah, YEAH, that's great... he wipes his mouth with... ungh... a paper napkin... yeah, gotta film this..."

Eh.

I prefer 'DoYouKnowHowDryYourGrandmothersSnatchIs'.

Mine is simply named "AAA". That way it's on top of the list wherever I move to.

I like that. It makes me feel superior. To you.

Soon I'll be getting a new computer and will be setting up my first wi-fi network at home, and I'm already agonizing over what to name it. The pop culture choices are nearly endless, but I figure things like Skynet and HAL_9000 have probably been done to death by now. I also figured anything Star Trek or Star Wars related would be old hat, but judging from this thread, maybe not.

Some of my ideas:

bushwood_cc

camp_north_star

arkham_guest

monkey_island

ten_forward

cellblock_1138

genco_pura

vandelay_industries

krusty_krab

disgraceland

kingdom_of_moronica (or maybe moronica_for_morons)
 
2013-02-18 04:44:39 AM
Mine's: blade.eric

And it's wide open. Like a Holland, MI Linux user's b-hole.

When I got my big black beast of a computer, about three people joked independently of each other that it reminded them of Darth Vader. My best friend said I should name it that and continue the name across the entire system, which I did, resulting in Darth Documents, Darth Videos, Darth Downloads and, of course, Darth Wifi for my router.

Not that original, but I like it anyway.

VKO Lotos-S Free WiFi (on a portable device that only establishes WLANs for a short time)

/Slight odds of actually being obscure, since an open Google finds lots of unrelated results...
 
2013-02-18 05:30:18 AM
Just checked for the first time and it seems the most humorous WiFi network name in my area is "cylonswelcome". There is also one called "doubanjiang", which is phoneticised Chinese for a type of bean sauce.
 
2013-02-18 05:36:45 AM
Mine is House_of_Trouser.  I reckon that's pretty obscure too.

Mine's called "Unmarked Van", which would be more intimidating if it wasn't, you know... In English in a non-English speaking country, but I fear using the special Danish characters for a correct translation would freak out some lesser devices.

Tastes Like Chicken: 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?"


Would've been funny if that WAS his name, and he'd never heard of Dr. Who...

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

2013-02-18 06:58:08 AM
Since various kinds of surveillance vans are turning out to be much less original than I'd thought, maybe I'll rename mine to Cryptonomicon. Would certainly fit well with the typical "wait, your guest password is *what*? Mind spelling that out for me really slowly?" reactions I tend to get.
 
2013-02-18 06:59:15 AM
Oh, and my neighborhood is boring...you can tell who's network is who's by their pet names.

/yes, I'm part of the problem
