My home WiFi name is a dull, long combination of letters and numbers, setup password protected of course, and it's hidden. I have a wide range N1 router by a corner window to allow me to use the connection outside the house, so my main point was to make it secure rather than find a nice name

If I'd pointed that out on any other forum, people wouldn't have found at all amusing. Thats why I use this forum, not because people know what their talking about or tje fact it's so well maintained but because you guys appreciate my sense of humor!!
