I think the default "linksys" one is funnier.  Connect to it, log onto 192.168.1.1, login with the root/admin user/pass, and then cause some havoc.

People that leave their networks open like that deserve to be punished.  :D

Those almost always need a password to get on anyway. ;)

what i want to know is how they got spaces in the name!    (no seriously, how?  i want spaces in mine)

 

Depends which router he/she is using...  For example, some sites do not allow you to use special characters, that you must use letters and numbers.

 

It works on mine that I have spaces.

 

You can try by renaming your SSID and see if you can add space.

The linksys in that picture is an unsecured SSID. Unsure why you would need a password anyhow...

;) This is what comes up most every time you try to get on a supposedly unsecured network:

Just a word of warning but some unsecured access points are set up as "honey pots" - we have one around here which is posing as an unsecured BT-HomeHub3 or Netgear at different times of the day (Same MAC address).

You connect to it, they gather information from your connection request, port scan, targeted vulnerability scan & try to deploy payloads to your machine e.g. launch your web browser to "authenticate" which is typical of Public WiFi access.

Some are more passive e.g. hijack DNS - serve what appears to be an internet connection but also serve targeted browser exploits and key log all info.
