I made my WiFi name "McalleyboysInternetCafe", actually used my first name not mcalleyboy, so I could rub it in every time they try to connect.

How about National_Bureau_Investigation_ Surveillance _Unit ?

I've used the local equal name in other places just for a laugh.

Given the absolute deference and fear that some of the locals will show to anyone in authority it just might work.

Thank you Zacwhite15, so far it's been OK, after I changed it to MAC filtering, I'll keep monitoring any slow downs. I have my WiFi unit upstairs and so the loacation could travel much further, I have open windows in all sides of our bedroom. I performed a test on how far the signal is traveling and it's traveling across the street within reach of the neighbors.

I like the Paranaque area, they have a cool twin mall there with probably one of the best grocery stores in the upstairs mall and then when you leave a walk way type escalator for you and your cart. Never had the chance to look at the private grocery clubs. I live much farther away and on the lower end of the Laguna de Bay lake.

I like that name Manitoba, gosh my relatives aren't scared of anyone, it could be complete and utter ignorance, some are locked up in jail for selling Shabu, stealing is a way of life and so the lack of police enforcement scares no one in the area of Laguna that I live in.

Funny your supposed to wear your helmet while riding the motorcycle they still don't do that here or they carry the helmet on their arms, it makes no sense to me. The entire entire police force in our municipality was fired recently for dealing with drugs and murder and before that the two Police Chiefs one in our municipality and the next accidentally got run over by a truck whiles standing on the side of the road getting ready for their morning jog by the highway two years earlier.

Nice tool for sniffing your network. Gives you the host name and mac address so you can make a deny list...
