    1.) 127.0.0.1
    2.) 127.0.0.2
    both WPA2 , broadcast: off, mac filtering: off

    GO!

    Uber-geek. :p

    WEP, Broadcast is on, no MAC filtering.

    Now if I only had a good driver for my wireless card in the lappy that works with Server 03 (used to be a Vista box), then I could have both machines on the webz.

    Any particular reason you're using WEP? (instead of WPA/WPA2)

    I have two SSID's.

    1. Legend - SSID broadcast off, WEP encryption, MAC filtering ON. Running through to 192.168.1.0/27 @ 54Mbps.
    2. Overvolt - SSID broadcast on, WEP encryption, MAC filtering OFF. Running through to 192.168.0.0/27 @ 5.5Mbps.

    Second network also has a honey pot set up for the occasional person who decides to stroll onto my public network. It's running a keylogger and packet sniffer.

    At home: "Gauteweb" - WPA2.

    Summercabin: "Lassebo" - completely open (no neighbours within range, and it's only turned on when I'm there).

    I change my ssid quite often and making it something insulting to the neighbor next door. He can't figure out who keeps doing it but I get a kick out of him telling me about it when he sees them. Like "JimmyStinks" or "VWjunk"...etc.... keeps it interesting. It's all light humor. We are good friends actually.

    SSID: Kakariko
    House full of Zelda fans so it was a pretty obvious choice to us

    Security: WEP
    I have a DS Lite which won't connect via WPA

    Mac Filtering: on
    Due to being on WEP I don't feel safe without it.

    Broadcast: off

    Mode: b/g/n

    Combination of the first few letters of my last name and "net".

    WPA (old WiFi card prevents me from going to WPA2), broadcast on, no MAC filter.

    mdjthmsx01
    mdjthmsx01-mesh

    The first one is my main network running on a WRT54GS w/ DD-WRT, WPA/WPA2. The name was derived by using my initials, my wife's initials, our home and the 01 I have no idea why I put it on. :)

    The 2nd one is my test mesh network from open-mesh.com. I use this network for testing new firmware releases before I release them to my production network. It's WPA only.

    if you don't understand my canadian ways, thisClip will educate you, at least a little bit.

    Mine is boring, but my neighbor changes his almost daily. Today it is Purple Sparkles. I think he's doing mushrooms. :)

    Right now it's "how" using wpa2. Getting a new wireless router tomorrow when the FiOS guy comes to do the install, so not sure what I'll name that just yet.

    I stick mostly with wired because large file transfers take to long over wireless. But my one AP is:

    "Bluebox": WPA2, broadcast off, MAC filtering off

    Also running DD-WRT, stock firmware was lacking the capability I needed and I didn't want to buy a $500+ router.

    I just run mine as BSD as my firewall/router for years has been BSD based.
