comment Stop search Active Directory when not available
I'm not understanding what you mean by "search AD". Can you clarify your question and add some details?

comment how to use public ip in my private network
I'm not understanding your question. How do you want to use it? Do you want to assign it directly to a host in your network or do you want to forward services (HTTP, etc.) from the public ip to a private ip?

comment How to track my stolen laptop
MAC addresses are locally significant, meaning they aren't discoverable outside of the physical network that they're connected to. I can't, for instance, discover the MAC address of the computer you posted this question from with my computer. So no, this isn't possible AFAIK.

comment Short-circuited ethernet wiring? Cable tester loop
I know I terminated it correctly, because I tested some cables I practised on and they tested fine - Testing some cables that aren't actually the problematic cable is not in fact a validation that the problematic cable is terminated correctly, regardless of your "crimping" skills.

comment LAN Transfer ;Ethernet vs. Fiber
Again, that's not a function of the size of the pipe, unless the pipe is saturated. Have you looked at the utilization for any of those connections?

comment LAN Transfer ;Ethernet vs. Fiber
If your transfer rates vary from 80 to 400 Mbps on a 1Gbps connection why do you think they'll improve on a bigger connection?

comment LAN Transfer ;Ethernet vs. Fiber
can it will help me to get more speed - probably not. increasing the size of the pipe isn't going to make the hosts put more data on the wire. the bandwidth/speed of the connection is the capacity of the connection to carry data. how much data can be put on the wire in a given time period? just because more data can be put on the wire doesn't mean that more data is going to be put on the wire. were the existing connections saturated? if not, then fiber probably isn't going to make any difference.

comment Reducing system disk space usage on computer with SQL Server
Don't touch manually any of SQL Server log files! - That's not strictly technically true. You can delete the SQL Server errorlog log files and SQL Server Agent logs if you don't care about the information in them. You can also safely delete any trace files that aren't in use. As you say though, the transaction logs shouldn't be manually deleted. I would suggest looking at your Database Recovery Mode and setting it to Simple for all of your databases (if appropriate) to keep the transaction logs in check.

comment My local disk (C:) icon is gone after using USBFix?
So your computer was infected with some type of malware? Why would you want to continue using it as it is? Wipe it and reinstall. Then restore your data from backup after you've scanned your backup for malware.

comment Can I separate email id in spreadsheet based on domain in columns?
Putting them in different columns isn't really sorting them is it? It's more like separating them.

comment Best way to make returning a loaner computer later on secure and private?
How about not conducting personal business on a work provided computer? That would simplify it, no? No clean up necessary.

comment Using WLAN Router without creating new subnet
That looks about right. The second router would be acting as an access point rather than a router.
