Well firstly you can't name your WiFI with spaces, and secondly mine is Children_of_the_Atom
Because why not ;p

Also makes it really easy to find when you have to connect something new. I guess that's the whole point

I love it when people tell me I can't do something I am already doing.

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...

Fairly recent photo of the pantry panel:

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?

Also BOP you gained a lot of admiration from my side so don't take this wrong, I am just baffled you wouldn't know that SSID spec and reality are 2 very sad things that rarely if ever meet together, and if they do it's usually a great depression. Working from home has gained me a great inside view on the horrible state of consumer printers. Where I wanted to move my printer to my work place in summer and couldn't connect to my WIFI.. yeah. That is a thing ;/
