    Yeah, comes with a fair bit of crap installed. This is company issue (Z61m) and fortunately the IT guys ditched a lot of it before it reached me and I've since cleaned up a bit more. As for their actual "ThinkVantage" software, can't do much about that but it's fair unintrusive - apart from when it wants to backup.

    rofl rtt, you goon :p

    Some of you also appear to be missing the point, we don't give a monkeys that there are or are not other folk with wireless in your street, we want you to make wild assumptions about them based on the name :p

    Only one I can find here, but I live in the basement, and can barely connect to a router that's in the room above me.

    WEP'd (token encryption for those who'd try and connect without) and exclusive MAC address access list. No KP for j00b, damned stealers. :p

    aroma - self-confessed geek. Although, what a cool name for a wireless network. Huh? HUH?!

    giddings - collects tea towels and polishes his hair. Has a shed at the bottom of his garden full of spoons.

    broadbandwirelessnetorking (previously braodbandwirelessnetworking) - obviously, the first name given to it was far more interesting. This network is the property of a wench across the street who has a red lightbulb in her kitchen. It's amazing the amount of friends she has.

    valhalla - my network. Viking mythology.
    linksys - obviously some toolbag who doesn't know how to do anything
    KJOI1 - someone who really likes acronyms I guess
    06B404817513 - probably set up by robots
    gsnetwork - the network of the Gentoo junkie two doors down

    there used to be one called Galaxy with two access points, but it's either out of range or gone.
