Good to know that my Motorola $150 android phone and the cheapest 10 inch iPad are classified as industrial gear. The iPad had no problem connecting to the Motorola cheap phone that had spaces in its SSID.
Maybe don’t buy dirt ass cheap shit HP printers And you’ll be able to connect to spec standard SSID Wi-Fi hotspots.

Ya. Spray foam here as well. Fortunately I could cable before the insulation was sprayed, but it's a pain to deal with afterwards, as I had to with the extra runs.

That foam is amazing. They're only just starting to use it here in Central FL. I was really afraid of what my electric bill was going to be, considering the high ceilings, and my wife's preference to freeze down the master suite, but that foam insulation is wonderful.

That's a very nice setup. Unfortunately, this house has closed cell, dense, spray in foam insulation. It's great to keep the house at a reasonable temperature but it made running cables a total pain in the ass so I had to design it around an MVP model. The next house will have conduit with plenum cabling for easy runs and swap out as needed.

Also hard-wiring printers is all nice and good.. but then how do you print from your tablet?

In my case both my HP Color laser, and my wife's Epson inkjet, are hardwired to the network. I can print to either one via it's static IP from my Surface Pro tablet or laptop connected to the trusted Wifi network. Never had a need to print from a phone or Android tablet.

Four access points to cover the whole house seamlessly (same SSIDs so most devices will latch on to the closest one). It's a big house. I used some software I got on sale at Boing Boing that lets you make a 'heatmap' of your Wifi coverage by walking around the house with a laptop running it. It let me tweak the access point locations. I suffered with a hodge podge of mixed access points and dead spots in the old house and I did not want the same problem here.

I posted some info on that heatmap software and a screenshot of my house's map here. It worked very well:

Not only can you put spaces in your wifi name, you can also use emojis in it. See this for an example of both.

And here I thought you know about IT stuff. I am shocked, SHOCKED.

The age old joke still applies (as recent as 2022)

Now connect your printer to it…

Uh, no. Not in my house. Literally everything in my house that is capable of doing so is hard wired. Before I moved in to this joint, I had Cat6a ran to every room where I needed a connection with the terminus in my office. Wifi at my house exists only as a courtesy for people's phones and tablets. It's on its own separate VLAN which only goes out and cannot connect to anything internally.

I mean, I do know a little about IT. ✌

A man after my own heart.
Yeah, same here. When we built the new house four years ago, CAT6 everywhere (every room has at least 2 jacks), several in my office alone and the server closet in my office. Main termination is in the pantry where I made a commercial style wall panel for all the network, phone, and CCTV equipment. Ten foot ceiling so it's all above the pantry shelves which made the wife acquiesce.

After the electrician ran all the cables, before they put up the drywall, I climbed up there and rerouted all the network cabling away from light fixtures to avoid electrical noise.

Everything is hardwired. Two wifi networks: One trusted for our phones and tablets, one untrusted for guests on it's own isolated LAN. Comcast modem is in bridged mode, and I used my own pfSense gateway.

My only regret is not adding more jacks. After the fact I decided to run the CCTV feed via HDMI over ethernet to all the TVs, and I didn't want it sharing the main network, so wound having to run some extra cable later.

No plan survives the first encounter with the enemy...

Man I really REALLY wish I could have done that here.. as it stands, I have to suffer the printer manufacturers, in fact, not following the SSID spec... like at all. One of my Canon printers can't even connect if there are any normal ascii signs, it only works with numbers and letters - my HP printer threw itself to pieces when I changed my SSID to something longer than 20 characters.. yeah, that's the state of absurdity we are talking about here So excuse my grim-dark view on this topic heh.

Also hard-wiring printers is all nice and good.. but then how do you print from your tablet?

The thread started by somebody commenting about naming the "hot spot on my phone" which definitely can and does allow spaces.

Also the specification for naming Wi-Fi SSID's allows for spaces.
That does not mean all router manufacturers follow the spec.
