The owner of our company was in town last year and needed to connect to the office wifi; she said, "Um, is this our wifi?" In addition to ours and some others that obviously belonged to building tenants was "Pussy Wagon," so thanks, Pussy Wagon people, for making me have that special moment with the boss.

Dial_up_VPN is probably the best.  It doesn't make you a target like other names, but is nothing anyone else wants a piece of.

Ours is a message to our neighbors, who have the "Dog Lovers" router.  Ours is named "Shut Your Dogs Up" since they bark all hours of the day and night.  Hasn't gotten the message across yet.  Ahh, passive aggressiveness.

Past names for my routers include "Anal Seepage", "Pedorama", "Pedopalooza", and "Google Blue Waffle".  That last one, I hope, hurt some neighbors, since they deserved it ;)

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.

Mine is nothing special, but from my apartment I can see around 25 SSIDs not including my 2 networks. The more interesting are:

"Hot Chick"
"Who is John Galt?"
"poopcave"
"ToCatchaPredatorSurveillenceVan"

I think I'll avoid the last two.

Amazingly with all those networks around, none of them are open and only 3 of them are still on WEP.

My boss had one called "Gutterbunny". When I looked it up and asked him about it, he denied knowing the meaning of the slang.

I WOULD change mine from "CenturyLink1129" to something like "ColoradoWaffleIron", but then I'd have to change it on every wireless device we own. Not worth it.

Lol, I remember when my neighbor's router was down for a while and they requested access to mine until they got their fixed. After one day of use I randomly kept kicking them out and told them my internet was acting up as well. They fixed their router real fast after that.

Mine is something about DHS Surveillance but I don't broadcast it.

I just checked my neighborhood. There's a lot more than the last time I looked, but nothing really interesting.

I do see an open one with a strong signal though. I'm tempted to drop my internet service.

I probably shouldn't though.

Wow - actually 9 open connecttions although it appears that about half of those are set up as "guest" and also have WPA-2.

3 people are still using WEP? Some people use their full names as SSIDs?

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.

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..."

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.

Not that original, but I like it anyway.

My phone's Mobile Hotspot was "FBI Surveillance Van #2" for a while.  It was entertaining to sit in the bar and see people looking at their phones, then out the door, and getting nervous.

I eventually changed it.  Now it says "Justin Beiber Limousine Wi-fi"  If i leave it open, plenty of people connect to it, surprisingly, a lot of them aren't teenage girls, and if i do password protect it, it's amusing to see if people notice and point it out.

Next week's will be "It hurts when IP"   I'm also considering "FREE 10gb WIFI" with a password on it.

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 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
