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

    GO!

    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.

    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.

    Earth (I think)
    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.

    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.
