Over the past couple of years, I've noticed trying to connect to someone's WiFi seems to result in sequences of events that barely vary from location to location.
People will spend a few seconds trying to remember the name of their network before telling you the first couple of random letters, and when you ask for the password, they will spend two minutes looking through their phones for the picture they took of the sticker on their router when they had it installed.
I've heard rumors of those who have this information written on a whiteboard or stuck to the fridge, but I guess I just associate with people who don't appreciate the value of a long-term investment.
However, there's no better way to make life easier for everyone than switching out the default name and password.
You can keep that name fairly generic, but if you're not one of those people who hates fun, there is an almost endless number of terrible puns and easily enjoyable jokes your router can be associated with.
