    You could try telling him that the kids found it and cracked his wep/wpa so it would best if he stopped transmitting his SSID as the little darlings have been using his connection for torrenting and he'll be liable for everything they download.

    Is it really worth it? So, the kids in a particular bit of the school sometimes see a swear word (which they already knew anyway), giggle for a moment and then get on with other things.

    There's enough FUD about, let's not encourage them.

    Your probably better off sorting it out via GPO rather than telling whoever owns the ap that whatever they call their network shows up on the laptops in the school down the road... if they're tech savy they could simply claim its not them and then have some fun at the schools expense.

    disabling access to all network related settings and disabling tooltips/notifications should sort it out

    I understand the teachers concerns.

    Thanks for the replies! For now I have got over the problem by locking down the laptops with group policies and making sure they connect to the correct network automatically.
