badLogic: FBI Surveillance Drone


Not a SSID, but I have a device with the network name "NSA Surveillance Drone Q-471." - Surveillance Drones are the new Surveillance Vans, I guess.

I only use it at the job that issued it to me... which is funded by a foreign government.  Waiting for someone to notice, at which point I change it to something like  ふたなり触手ポルノ and if anyone asks, I think it says "I love sushi."

Late to the game, but TOM SELLECK'S MUSTACHE was the best I've ever seen.
 
2013-02-18 07:24:09 AM  
Tons of those "2Wire" things around here... But also a "SmellyCat" and "AmandasBox". I've always wondered if that was just 1 device with 2 SSID....

keegles

"FBI surveillance Van" was funny the first few dozen SSIDs spotted.

Living in a college town, every other person seems to think they're a wireless comedian.  Every other person really should keep their day job.

FBI was too cliché

DEA surveillance van is the best in my opinion


Mine is currently set to DEATaskforce1

Formerly FBI.gov

My iPhone sniffed out a wifi network off Washington St in Portland called "Jailbait Network". Of COURSE it had to be secured.

Ok movie despite a non-plausible premise.

Mine is CrystalPistolBBS Was a old school warez site back in the 80's.

300 baud baby

Checked my immediate area and found nothing amusing name wise, and amazingly of the 10 in range, they're all locked. I iz impressed. I don't live in what I'd consider a 'common sense' rich environment.
 
2013-02-18 08:48:23 AM  
I have an unsecured wireless router that isn't connected to anything, it's called Hunny.

It has no internet connection and no clients.

The real one doesn't broadcast SSID and is WPA2 secured.

There's one in my apartment complex named "Bill Wi the Science Fi"
 
2013-02-18 08:54:02 AM  
Mine is uninteresting, just a bunch of random characters. Depending on which end of the house and which floor, I can see a bunch of "2Wire###." There are a few who I can tell which house, because of name, profession, or hobby.

I've been thinking of "Conquistador Instant Leprosy," just too lazy to change it. I could do "It's a streetlight" and find out how many Farkers there are around here.

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


I named a D-Link that, but I just like to watch the world burn.

The wife insisted we name the network 'lolicom'

My (UPS-backed) open wifi had been some variation of "nohup" since before getting Rick-rolled was cool.

Silly Verizon FiOS would go offline somewhere upstream of our ONT within 30 minutes of a neighborhood power outage, though.

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

I just checked my neighbors' wi-fis and someone named theirs, "12345" I swear I'm so tempted to spend a few minutes to see if I can guess what the password might be on that.

That sounds like the code an idiot would have on their luggage.
/changes wifi password


My network is Spaceballs:  The Access Point.

/No, the password is not 12345.

But last year we had a new family move in the building a couple days later I noticed a new options - "Pretty Fly for a WiFi"...

Why would it make people mad that the gardner's gay?

vodka: Pffft, amateurs... I prefer to encode my cute messages in the MAC address.  It works even when your device does not have a SSID.


Yeah, I hate it when my wife's cute elementary school teacher co-workers come over and I have to set up their wifi passwords as "CAFEBABE8008135"

/OK, not really
//I don't really hate it, that is.

So, not only is he an illegal Mexican, but he's also a homo???

You don't think that would upset people?

Miss Stein: 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.


In your dimensions, it does.

Maybe it would have, when there were a couple thousand Jesúses out there. 50 million? Eh, we're all used to it by now.

"$2.99 Per Minute" is one that came up on my phone during Trick or Treating last Halloween.

"Blahhhhh" is another one.
