Came across this while searching for some info about setting up a WLAN:

"Default SSID Issues
Access points are preconfigured with a default name for the SSID based on the vendor. For example, Cisco access points have the SSID of tsunami, which, by the way, means a big sea wave. Most other vendors simply use their company name as the SSID, such as proxim and symbol."

WHSmiths also do an exclusive Japanese puzzle book called 'tsunami'.

These things happen...

Wonder if they will change them?

I think you mean "Harbour Wave", not that I'm pedantic or anything.

LOL, we certainly appear to boast a higher percentage of pedants than most other forums. :D :g:g

Aside from the spelling issue, it's not a good idea for individuals to send out their SSID. Just in case it's not obvious.
