Wireless network names

| | Comments (1)

Last week, Patrick and I did wireless surveys by car, starting in Urbana near Stoughton and Goodwin and the neighborhood north-east of there (to University/Lincoln,) and then drove along Green and High to the Schnucks in Urbana. We wardrove to and around Sidney, IL, and then drove back to campus. On the way back, we took Windsor west to 1st (in Champaign,) and drove up through the research park and the campustown apartments near 1st.

Wardriving is fun. It's neat to see the networks pop up around you. It's also fun to see what people name their wireless networks. Some are set to the defaults, others are personalized by benign labels (zypher), or use personal names (LeasNetwork), some advertise (RonPaul2008.com), others boast (Peter_is_SEXY), some give locations (Apt. 303), others give movie references (McLovin), and some are just mean (fuckasians)

Digital anthropologists or sociologists might come across this some day and want to study network names (SSIDs or ESSIDs.) Here's a dump of all the network names we found, with duplicates, in the order we discovered them (so locality is somewhat assured.) There are over 1500 networks. Blank lines were unnamed networks. If a network name duplicates, it's because it was seen from a different/new access point (BSSID).

Here's the list. Are you on it?

What's the point of naming a router? Security?
