Personally I think the obvious name being used right now is a good way to attract a larger user base, which I think should be the primary goal right now to make this site a success. I like some of the suggestions though, especially 'network unreachable'.

Jeez, it looks like I'm the only one that thinks Packet Loss was the best name. Where do you go when you're at a loss for an answer? Packe Loss.

Network Engineering aka Network Unreachable! Maybe we stick with the current name and once we're out of Beta propose a vote?

What about "PacketSniffer"? Since we are sniffing around in the world of packets... :)
