Naming Wireless Networks

I live in a building where there are always notes left in the lobby asking to have access to available wireless networks (sharing with some sort of compensation of course).

I was wondering if there are any rules in Switzerland with respect to naming your wireless networks?

Some people elsewhere have had a bit of fun this way and I was perhaps looking to get some tenants asking to have access to some 'oddly' named SSIDs. Just for my own personal laughs of course.

Just name it what you want.

I saw a good one recently, "Get your own bloody internet".

Re: Naming Wireless Networks

Set one up with the name "Surveillance[first line of your address]". Bet there won't be any post-its asking for access to that one...

Re: Naming Wireless Networks

Leave encryption off, call it free public wifi and collect as much dirt as you want on their browsing habits, passwords, conversations etc.*

Re: Naming Wireless Networks

Most of the people (if not all) in my building don't speak english (or don't claim to understand), and many are there temporarily (<year). So the plan is to see posted requests in polite german for access to XXXXX (my network) in the lobby for my network. Just so when I come home after a long day of work, I get a good joke.

Any suggestions?

Thinking along the lines of "Can'tAffordOwnAccess", "Z-Permit", "PWisAlt-F4", "TrojanHorse", "NoSignal", "FBI_surveillance_van_2712". etc.

Yeah's it's a long weekend's Monday, I'm bored.

Re: Naming Wireless Networks

After reading this, I've just secured my network.

When we first got dogs I wanted to call one of them Raph but I was overruled. So I named the network Raph instead.
