After the Web414 meeting last week I ran MacStumbler on the drive home to see what I could find. I was surprised by how many networks it saw while driving 65mph on I-94…

Here’s a few open wifi networks I found along the way:

  • ProHealthCareGuest
  • Enters
  • michaelswireless
  • PFH
  • binc-public
  • stone creek coffee

There were also a some ‘linksys’ and ‘belkin’ and a whole bunch named orange, orange12, orange13, orange14, etc…

These were closed, but I found the names amusing or interesting:

  • Dream Kitchens
  • klotka
  • TowerSpecial
  • oconomowoc
  • trec
  • Midwest Law
  • Nomad
  • EyesOff
  • Kronos Wireless
  • J&J Awesome Wireless
  • Pruscha for Mayor

The last two tie for my favorite, ‘J&J Awesome Wireless’ and ‘Pruscha for Mayor’ – I mean, one is awesome and the other is an advertisement for a mayoral candidate!

    Oh, and I forgot the reason I was posting. I used to have my wifi networked named “monkey” because it amused me when WinXP would say “Now connecting to the Monkey Network, and effort trying to get through the WEP, (which no dictionary attack will ever do, and even if they did, they’d never get onto my mahcines, but whatever.) They annoyed me so I renamed the network “SlowBroken” and suddenly the neighborkids quit trying to hack it all the time. And, as a bonus, WinXP now says “Now connecting to the SlowBroken Network.”

    Craig Pruscha, for the record, is running for 1st district alderman, not mayor. The Mayoral office isn’t even up for election this April.
