Shame that they didn't capture the MAC addresses of that WiFi network. Would have made tracing it easier.

My home wifi network is 173Fergusson when actually I live at 175 Fergusson. 

 

The reason is because I gave free wifi to that house 3 owners ago. One day i changed the router and it didnt support a secondary SSID, so rather than go over and reconnect their devices, I just used the 173 ssid and reconnected mine. Pretty sure the more recent owners of the house have been wondering what it is.

As someone who was born in and grew up in Michigan, this is really disappointing.

Aredwood: Shame that they didn't capture the MAC addresses of that WiFi network. Would have made tracing it easier.

 

There was no crime committed, why would it need to be traced? As the police chief said, you can name your SSID whatever you want. I can't count the number of "fbi_surveillance_van_12" I saw in the states, same with variations like "CIA_VAN_1" etc... They aren't in danger of being arrested for impersonating an officer for naming their SSID that. No crime, no harm, no fowl. Just an overly paranoid manager living in a state of perpetual fear.

 

That being said, I like when people are at least somewhat creative with their ssid's nothing worse than seeing a bunch of vodafone3305d8 and SPARK-B315-1FD6 and trying to remember and tell people which one is yours. Ours is OMGWTFBBQLOL and has been for as long as I can remember. Makes it easy to remember, and easy to tell people which one to connect to.

mdf: There was a "[Street Name] Brothel" wifi network around the corner from my brother for a while. I thought it was a pretty funny joke to set the neighbours tut tutting.

Turns out there was a business establishment operating under that name and they certainly weren't guilty of false advertising.

 

Brothels have WiFi nowadays? Who knew?

Because of course the terrorist called the wifi 'remote detonator'! Otherwise it wouldn't work properly, right? I mean, it's like a burglar with a burlap sack that has SWAG written on it. That's how you know he's a criminal!

 

 

 

I expected to find the classic 'Tut-tut-tut' Super-Sensible crowd in this thread and I was not disappointed. I suppose they wouldn't see the humour if I confessed that when I used to live near a primary school, my wifi was called "Sugary drinks, mince pies and methamphetamine 4 cheap".

In the past I’ve had SSIDs “CIA Surveillance Unit” and “ [Name] Road Massage & Escorts Guest WiFi”. Being a SA I thought thiis was hilarious - and looking back the kid in me still thinks this sort of stuff is quite funny.
