I'm probably just dreaming, but... Given that the flagship sites have amusing names (i.e. Stack Overflow, Server Fault) - perhaps we could eventually attain something similar?

Here's a few of my ideas that I'll throw out there:

  • Network Unreachable (as in the ICMP Destination Unreachable code)
  • Packet Loss
  • Bridge Storm
  • Routing Loop

  • i love Network Unreachable especially when you come to stack over flow when something is wrong - like an overflow ... – tgkprog May 20 '13 at 21:35
  • Many of the questions are not specific issues that need to be solved, but design, planning and general knowledge questions. – Yosef Gunsburg May 22 '13 at 6:20

    What about: Static Route – LapTop006 May 23 '13 at 8:15

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'.

I don't think changing is a good idea. The name was selected during the proposal stage back in Area51.

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.

  • Packet Loss is a winner for me, too. – Ryan Foley Dec 2 '13 at 21:58

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... :)
