What's the strangest Wi-Fi name you've ever seen? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

rachelagnihotri profile image Rachel ใƒป1 min read

This weekend, I went to my aunt's home. Being the obnoxious techie that I am, the first thing I said when I stepped into the house was this:

"What's the Wi-Fi name and password?"

My 10-year old cousin came running to me and, with great pride, she said, "The Wi-Fi name is YouWillBeHacked. I chose this name, you know."

I connected to the Wi-Fi. Thank God I wasn't hacked. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Sarcasm aside, I've been curious since then. What is the strangest or maybe even the coolest Wi-Fi name you've ever come across? ๐Ÿคจ

Let everyone know!

One in the apartment complex I live in ithurtswhenIP...

The pain...

 
 
 

Hahahha so many:

  • Panic at the Cisco
  • Everyday I'm buffering
  • Got 99 Problems but wI-FI AIN'T ONE
  • BatLAN and Robin
  • House LANnister

God, I need to go back to work hahaha.

 
 

Every single one of these made me chuckle lmao.

 

Was at a coffee shop and saw the network name "Tell my Wifi Love Her" which was definitely good for a chuckle.

 

Hahaha I think I saw a meme on this one too XD so hilarious!

 

My mobile phone's wifi name is "Martin Router King", and my 4G router's wifi name is "Martin Router King Jr", since they share the same mobile subscription.

My lower neighbors have one called "Silence of the LANs"

 

Now that I'm seeing this again, I would love to set up a fake WiFi network named "Enter at own risk" and connect it to a Raspberry Pi that directs all network traffic to a jump scare image or video stored locally.

If I had a Pi and extra router on hand, I totally would do this. Lol ๐Ÿ˜†

 
 
 

I named mine :
cxxxx[]::::::::::::::::::::::::>

 

"penny get your own wifi" ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

 

Sheldon said it right! ๐Ÿ˜‚

 
 

Once I saw: "Konลกpiraฤnรฝ byt" (In Slovak). Could be translated as conspiracy apartment. It was a joke related to Slovak political corruption scandal Gorilla

 

Mine's "turn down that metal!" ...so that i would have undeniable evidence, that it's not me forcing all neighbours to listen to metal.

 
 

Haven't seen it first hand, but someone on the internet posted an image with something similar to this Mum, click here.

 

Can't decide if this is cute or funny! :p

 

JOEY DOESN'T SHARE WIFI!
Quite old but this did make me chuckle when I first saw it...

 

I have a similar one on my list: CasadeJoey :D

 

My guest wifi is now "5G-Corona-Pole" (actually "5G-Corona-Mast", because I'm from Germany).
My real Wifi is called WOA-LAN (WOA -> Wacken Open Air)
The legacy 2.4GHz Wifi is of course called OBI-WLAN-KENOBI.

One of my neighbours called his wifi "Karl-Singel-30cm". Yes, he misspelled 'single'...

 

Mine is "FBI Tacos Van", always fun to see this name pop in the crowded area of my university !

 

This is a good evolution on the "FBI Surveillance Van" wifi trope

 
  • don't remember the exact wording, translated it would be "you won't come in"
  • not yet seen in the wild, but bet it is in use somewhere: You Shall Not Pass!
  • several friends had their SSIDs refer to "Messwagen" (radio/emission measuring vehicle)
 
 

Me: What's the wifi password?
Bartender: You need to buy a drink first.

Me: Okay, I'll have a coke.

Bartender: Is Pepsi okay?

Me: Sure. How much is that?

Bartender: $3.

Me: There you go. So what's the wifi password?

Bartender: You need to buy a drink first. No spaces, all lowercase.

 

My wi-fi name is "NOT AVAILABLE", but I have seen really strange ones, like "le bhikhari",(take this beggar) and like someone's name with i love u 'name' :D

 
 

Don't dare to explore any further. What has been seen....

 
 

5G test 300% power <city 120 kilometers away name>

Got a chuckle knowing there are people thinking 5G is causing covid :D

 

This Is Not The SSID You're Looking For

 

I named my hotspot "virus.exe" ๐Ÿ˜

 
 
 
once I saw

searching for wifi

quite funny

 

For a while my wifi SSID was NSA Germanyโ„ข

 

When I visit Sydney for the first time, the first network I found was named "it hurts when I pee"

 
 
 

You can use emoji in your wifi name :)
Such "My wifi rocks ๐Ÿฆ„"

 

Some older devices have issues with emoji in SSIDs though :( My networks are Galaxy News Radio and Radio New Vegas, and I used to have the radio emoji but things like the Logitec Harmony Hub and the Wemo Smart Plug couldn't find them.

 

sad :(
Could be used to prevent people to use your devices then :D

 

My home wifi name is "Get a hotspot mate".

 
 
 

Weirdest one was the "The unmarked van in your drive way" I'm sure my neighbors liked it :p

 

We have 'measles' in the office building. One of the business in the building must have caught it from someone.

Internet Disabled ๐Ÿ˜‚

 
 
 
 

My wifi was virus-exjs383-pc or fedal-police-van-1003ab
Thought would prevent people trying to connect.

 
 

"Because a LANnister never forget"

 
 

One that I still remember from around 2009 was "Pretty fly for a WIFI"

Currently have a neighbor:
Escaped Nigerian Prince

 

In my condo building we have - Abraham Linksys.
