Name it anything that has to do with law enforcement, FBI, ATF, etc... Or name it after your local police department, for instance, if you live in New York name it NYPD, this would keep most people away as they tend to be naive.

I've noticed people doing this a lot recently - to be honest I think it's retarded. I can't help but feel sorry for people who actually think the network is at all affiliated with some government or official organization. Maybe I just expect too much...

Awesome thread! Surprised to see no dual band yet? Do people name them different? I append 2.4ghz and 5ghz to each band.

Sorry, yeah I should have mentioned, each of my networks are named differently, Daedalus and Helios (reference to Deus Ex). Interested to know the same also.

Yeah I add which band to each one.

      Vodafone launches ‘unbreakable' Pro Broadband packages
      by Paul Hill



      Vodafone has announced the launch of its new Pro Broadband packages which it says will ensure you can always get online no matter where in your home you are. If you don’t receive coverage throughout your domicile, the firm said you can end your contract without facing a penalty.

      Under the new Superfast, Ultrafast and Gigafast plans, users will be provided with Super WiFi wireless range boosters that use software that works with the router’s Intelligent WiFi feature to provide the best performance. If they detect any wireless congestion from neighbours they will work around this to ensure you get a reliable connection.

      To make customers’ connections even more reliable, Vodafone has launched a new dedicated team called WiFi Xperts - a trained squad of engineers who proactively monitor networks and contact customers if they detect issues. New customers will be contacted by the WiFi Xperts within 10 days of their service to make sure everything is working properly.

      If you do run into issues with your connection between the router and the local telephone exchange, the router will utilise the Broadband Back-up feature which is essentially a 4G mobile connection via a USB plugged into the router to help you stay connected until WiFi is restored. The mobile USB is capped at 50GB but this can be extended if needed.

      It’s an interesting offer from Vodafone; we’ve all experienced a WiFi outage at some point or other and they can be frustrating. With more people learning and working from home, having a stable connection is more important than ever.

      Wireshark 3.4.3

      Wireshark is a network packet analyzer. A network packet analyzer will try to capture network packets and tries to display that packet data as detailed as possible. You could think of a network packet analyzer as a measuring device used to examine what's going on inside a network cable, just like a voltmeter is used by an electrician to examine what's going on inside an electric cable (but at a higher level, of course). In the past, such tools were either very expensive, proprietary, or both. However, with the advent of Wireshark, all that has changed. Wireshark is perhaps one of the best open source packet analyzers available today.

      Having just moved house, I noticed the wifi in my study was patchy. I therefore invested in a TP Link Powerline (TL-WPA4220) to run from my router to my study.
       
      It works perfectly on all my personal devices (Windows, Apple, Android etc) with them all getting the full wifi speeds promised by my ISP (Vodafone), both over wifi and ethernet. 
       
      The main reason I installed this, however, was for a fast reliable connection to my work computer. But whether via wifi or ethernet I'm getting much slower speeds on my work laptop than my personal devices connected to the same powerline - even slower than before I installed it when I was working at the far edge of my router's range. I'll be getting 70mbps download and 25mbps upload speeds on my personal devices and 2mbps download and 5mbps upload on my work computer.
       
      I called my work IT, they suggested my ISP was throttling my use (when testing the connection on my work laptop we found that when I connected to my ISPs network / server the speed was as expected, but any other server was very slugglish, which led them to think this).
       
      I contacted by ISP who insist they're not throttling my use and it must be something to do with my employer's IT policy. They did give me a static IP address suggesting this might help (but it hasn't).
       
      Any ideas why this might be happening?My main suspicoion is that it's something to do with the VPN on my work laptop (zscaler), although when I tried installing a VPN on my own persional laptop it had no effect on speeds. How could my laptop / VPN even recognise that my internet is coming from a different source? Are there any known issues with powerlines accessing secure VPN networks?
       
      I'm being bounced around to different people none of whom have a clue, so any advice would be gratefully received!
