    The FBI would never name their wifi FBI Surveillance Van #123...it's just some dude sick of having people piggy back off his router.

    I know a number of people who name their Wi-Fi "FBI Surveillance Van XXX". It's a joke.

    Another option would be to set authentication on it and tell it not to broadcast the SSID.

    One day I was messing with my wifi I noticed 1 available wifi that said Federal Bureau of Investigation. My son just told me it was him. Still freaked me out. Like way are they in the neighborhood. I know they wouldn't put their own label on it. Lol

    Being an IT guy at one point I had a small network and I've named all the servers after sexually transmitted diseases. Go right ahead and try hacking into Syphilis.

    A friend back home is not too technically savvy, but that's mostly due to him being too lazy to read instructions. He asked me to set up his wifi, so I said "Sure thing, but you'll need to change the settings when I'm done". To encourage him to do so, both the network name and the passphrase had some gay references. Sure, childish, but it finally got him to change the settings, especially after a repair guy from his internet provider came to fix something and reconnect and test his connection. He got some funny looks, thanked me afterwards with some chosen adult language (that's what friends do :)) and finally read the manual.

    i've always named my network something like "Por* and Viruses" in homage to my first roommate out of high school who always named our network "Luke's Por* Stash".
