Change your Wi-Fi ESSID
- I have changed my Wi-Fi ESSID (sometimes called network name) to laptopgiving.org in the hopes that my neighbors will see it and get curious! My Wi-Fi node is open (no WEP etc.) but even if your Wi-Fi node is encrypted and you don't want others to use it, simply set the ESSID to laptopgiving.org as an advertisement. Remember, every additional G1G1 customer means two additional laptops! --Sverma 18:50, 6 December 2007 (EST)
