Wifi in the ‘burbs

If you have a Wireless Internet Router at your office or home, i have a task for you. Stop what you are doing, connect up to the router and change the SSID to your street address. Better yet, hide it!.

Why?? I’ve noticed that as houses are being completed in my new neighbourhood, more and more Wifi networks are popping up on my PC. If you put your address on the network, at least it gives me (or at least another techie) a chance to come over and let you know if it is unsecure. Better yet, its a good excuse to meet your neighbours! You are changing the password when you install the device aren’t you?
