noun; WLAN that shows up nearly everywhere, with an excellent signal...yet doesn't have any internet connectivity. Claimed to be by some part of Hewlett Packard's plan for world domination. Beleived to be an innofensive peer-to-peer wireless network for HP printers by others.
A: "Hey look! My laptop detected a new wireless network called hpsetup....Excellent..."
B: "Good luck with that, foo "
Hewlett-Packard printers equipped with 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi network interfaces beacon a peer to peer network "hpsetup" out of the box. This network has no connectivity to the Internet or to any other ports on the printer. It's used to configure the wireless interface and network settings. Connecting to it and expecting to get on the Internet is futile.
I pity the foo who expects hpsetup to go to anything.
