100+ Nerdy WiFi Names To Galvanize Your Neighbors

Are you looking for Nerdy wifi names? During my time living in New York City, I saw many things for the first time I never thought I’d see. Half-naked men dancing on subways right in front of my face, a rat literally carrying a slice of pizza 3 times his size, as well as significant celebrities here and there. But one thing I saw the most was the best and most funny WiFi network names I’d ever seen. With over 27,000 people per square mile in the city, you start to notice these things...especially as a technology nerd.

Changing that Boring Wifi Name to Good Wifi Name

Changing your Wifi name is easy as 1,2,3,...4,5!

  2. If there is an error, this means that this is not your correct router’s IP address. For a list of available IP Addresses in connection to your router, click here
