Our routers default name was LuckyEagle. Perfect! No way I wanted to change that. Anyone had takeaways lately?

mines Batcave. but not broadcasting, even though this doesnt improve security....

moving house in 6 days, this has inspired me to make up a funny name for the wifi..

may just reuse "Pretty fly for a wifi", never seen that one before. or be rude and call it "Madame's Dungeon" or something...

I should put one of the old G AP"s onto the big antenna on the roof sometime with stupid names. Not sure how well the coax will have survived.
