Mine is 'Fillory'

If you know what gets you into Fillory, you deserve to have free internets.

Mine's virus.net. Because I'm freaking hilarious.

Mine is WeaselPenis

I knew these two college girls who were housemates - a Vietnamese girl named Tran and an American girl whose last name was Guy. Can't remember whether it was the SSID or the PW, but:
trannyguys

(And no, I'm pretty sure they were real girls. Very very sure, in one case)

So are you admitting you hit tranny, or the guy?

I went uncreative...Network_23

/and a passkey that breaks a lot of security guidelines...And some software. It's too long

If anyone's in the neighborhood and can see "Imwatchingupoop", bring beer.
 
2013-02-18 02:47:56 PM
Mine is the now stunningly unoriginal FBI Surveillance Vehicle 0D9, and it's wide open! (But you can only connectif I have your MAC, so too bad).

I wish Routers would let me send out a message when connections fail. I just want it to say "Login attemp detected. Activity logged" or some nonsense like "Scanning for Pornography. Plese keep PC powered on. Thank you."

One neighbor has TradeBeerforWiFi.

I renamed mine Zoidberg!

It was Danger, but when my old router crapped out I began using "GlobalChaosInc". After reading all these I'm tempted to change it to something foul, like "Pinky Pie's brown eye". But then I'm too lazy, so feel free to use it.
 
2013-02-18 03:16:55 PM
For what it's worth, mine is Abraham_Linksys
 
2013-02-18 03:17:05 PM
I am typically one of the FBI van variants, but after reading this thread and thinking about my neighborhood (Tons of old, white republicans with Romney signs all over).  I think I will change mine to something akin to "Obamas free WiFi service"

One of my neighbors has "My Internet Not Yours." So you own the internet now?
 
2013-02-18 03:25:26 PM
Mine is boring, it's called Dancing Cactus, after an old company I owned.  The only halfway interesting one that I can see in my neighborhood is Gefilte Fish.

/Yes, I do live in S. Florida.
//How'd you guess?

YouPeopleAreCrazy: The yellow is/was mine, the blue my lovely neighbors

[25.media.tumblr.com image 837x342]


Had a neighbor like that. Their network was "white power". They were an older couple, and I'm pretty sure their son set it up. The only consolation was that the dumbass had killed himself on a motorcycle a couple of years before. I'm pretty sure they had no clue of how to change it, but it was in line with their beliefs too, despite him paying black people to help him with projects on his junky property.

Must have been tough for them, it was a seriously diverse neighborhood!

I use MasturbatingClownRodeo on my 3g hotspot.
 
2013-02-18 03:56:38 PM
I had an unsecured connection for a while because not many people live near us. Maybe one person could make use of our WiFi. I had it this way intentionally because my family is NOT tech savvy. Then some asshat bragged to me that oh no you have an unsecured connection. I could have had it locked down tighter than a nun's asshole before then but just threw up a strong WPA-2 password. Since then it has caused nothing but problems because I have to physically write out the password so people I know can connect

Also the Ozzymandias wifi name and the hookerwithapenis (amazing song) are my favorites

Sandman7678: Mine is "Teletran1"


Heh that's the name of my desktop box.

That would be hilarious!  Wonder how long it would be until we started seeing the stories from your neighbors on Facebook.
 
2013-02-18 04:17:23 PM
This thread is inspiring me.  I think I'll go home and change mine to one of the following:

Detachable penis
Liquid Chicken
B10W M3
Killed Kenny
FUH-Q
Your Mom's Webcam Show

Not sure which.
 
2013-02-18 04:24:23 PM
I considered Dixie Flateline, but decided to go with Gentleman Loser for mine.

/despite the slashies, I'm not a technical boy.

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

My son named our previous one (Tardis). I got the honors when we purchased a new router back in January.

As a nerdgirl, I approve of this; Tardis is pretty epic.  Ours is named after the dog, a neurotic pug.

And oh my, thank you for the month of TF!   *mwah, mwah, mwah*


You're welcome. :-)

jpo2269: Initially my "mifi" was "CIA Mind Control Van Number 6," have since changed to "UN Population Control Van #2"

My next name will deal with "Contrail monitoring"


Mine is "HAARP Hurricane Creator"

serial_crusher: Would "Linksysavich Chomovsky" by too obscure?


That one's pretty good, buuuuuddy

I live within range of a NFL training camp...

"[Teamname] Sucks" is mine, until they learn to obey traffic laws in a residential area.

My home PC is named Dethbox, and so I named our network Dethbox_Netwerk.

I think I was in the midst of a Metalocalypse marathon when I came up with those.
 
2013-02-18 05:14:03 PM

pseydtonne: 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.

I surprised that there has not been a Junior Ganymede Club mentioned. I am disappoint.

Let's see, I've got neighbors using VAMPIRES and The Necronomicon and Puff_the_Magic_Dragon.

Many lulz have been had.

After reading this thread, I have some new ideas.

Think I'm going to try Nevada_Test_Site next!

shanrick: If my neighbors wifi is unsecured, should I do them a favor and secure it?


I have never secured somebody else's wifi but I did take the opportunity to change the default password to something of my liking. I figured that would ensure that I would always be able to connect.

My router is named MamasGotaSqueezebox and the network is named SpongeBobPoopyPants.

I have no idea why.

Mine has been 'AlliedMasterintelligence' for a long time now.

\It hates us.
 
2013-02-18 11:11:27 PM

Badgerlad: 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.

I may have to name mine Puzzle Palace in homage to yours.

Those are good books, and the third one should (better) be out sometime this year.

I mean really, that band is alright... I don't see what the problem is...
