50 funny Wi-Fi names that will make your neighbors smile

funny Wi-Fi name - drop it like it's hotspot

Tired of the boring name that’s assigned to your Wi-Fi network? If you have ever browsed the list of networks in your area, you’ve probably found that the majority are named after the brand of router broadcasting the wireless network.

In order to change that name, you simply have to log into your router through your Web browser. Basically, you just enter a string of numbers into the URL of your browser. You can find this by looking on the bottom of your router or simply searching the Net for your router brand. Netgear routers, for instance, use 192.168.1.1 to reach the admin screen. At this point, you just navigate through the admin to find the Wi-Fi network name, then change it. Here’s a good walkthrough on PCMag, if needed.

We’ve scoured the Internet tubes to bring you our 50 favorite alternatives to spice up your home’s wireless network.

    Ours was, jokingly, “I hate my neighbors”. Only two of our neighbors actually showed up to a hearing about our garage renovation and made fools of themselves whining about it, with a printout of my entire Facebook history. Then they accused us of having wild parties (we had two parties for little girl Scouts the entire time we lived here- hardly wild). Since they don’t like “I hate my neighbors”, we’ve decided to change if it “allhua akbar”.

    I named my home wifi network VOTE4HILLARY

    I know it drives my very conservative neighbors crazy wondering who this heretic is. LOL.

      I admire your chutzpah, but you could get some “redneck” geek with skills find you, or just launch a DDOS attack, rendering your access point unusable. For that reason, I don’t recommend politicizing an SSID. I like puns or acronyms that puzzle or amuse.

      I use EON, from a documentary on 007 (Bond, James Bond) It stands for EVERYTHING OR NOTHING, I was thinking of TWINE (The World Is Not Enough)

      I used to use “ChiefWiggum”, Simpsons top cop.

      I had to take the space as newer wireless devices like, Chromecast, Router, and a few wireless prints get their chips in a wad & cannot be connected to or even display SSIDs with a space in them, it makes them wiggy
