comment Set up WLAN in 3-level house
The WLAN is set up by an ASUS RT-N12 router which provides perfect coverage for the ground floor and the basement. However, I set up my "home office" in the basement where the signal barely arrived - This statement contradicts itself. Either the signal coverage in the basement is good or it isn't.

comment No connections are available
Why would you plug it into the WAN port? It should be plugged into a LAN port.

comment How to return a GPO to Not Configured?
No, the order of Group Policy processing and precedence is as follows: LSDOU, which means Local, Site, Domain, OU. So if you create a GPO at the Site, Domain or OU level and set the setting to Not Configured that will override the Local setting and make it Not Configured. - technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc785665(v=ws.10).aspx. The article Is from the Windows 2003 TechNet Library but the order of GPO processing and precedence hasn't changed.

comment How to open a local client archive .ost file on a new computer
The OST file is not an archive of your mailbox or email. It is a cached copy of your mailbox. There isn't anything in the OST file that isn't also in your mailbox. You do not need to open or import the OST file.

comment Windows AD user policy query
I don't understand the question. What is user-policy group? Do you mean Group Policy? If so, it's not possible to have a user object that doesn't have at least one Group Policy object applied (Default Domain Policy).

comment Windows Networking - Treat two subnets as one network
That's a bit of a misconception. The size of the physical and logical subnet allows for the potential to have a large broadcast domain but in reality the volume of broadcast traffic is a function of the number of hosts/computers on the network, not it's physical or logical size. If you have 100 hosts/computers then you have 100 hosts/computers worth of broadcast traffic, whether the physical/logical network supports 100 or 10,000 hosts.

comment How to finish my DNS setup?
For security reasons I am using example.com - See here for what information to obfuscate in your answer. If this is a publicly registered domain name then what's the point of obfuscating the name? That's just making it harder for us to help you. - meta.serverfault.com/questions/963/…

comment Can I use Macrium (or advice alternative) to complete back-up and restore a whole Windows system?
Yes, Macrium Reflect (and a bazillion other backup programs) can do this. I use Macrium Reflect at home and have done this. I've also used Acronis True Image, Windows Backup, etc., etc.

comment How to get a list of domains blocked by my ISP/MikroTik router?
I don't understand the question. Are you trying to find all of the web sites that are redirected to 192.168.222.66 or are you trying to access all the web sites that are redirected to 192.168.222.66?

comment “Prioritize” traffic behind a switch to stay behind a switch
This doesn't make sense. If the devices are all on the same Layer 3 network, and they're not connected wirelessly, then their communication should always go through the switch. How are you determining that it isn't?

comment I foolishly detached the fiddly “push pin” cooler from a client's old PC. Here are some possible plans of action. What would you do, and why?
I understand that you're nervous because you've never done this before, but you're making a bit of a mountain out of this mole hill. Option 1 is your best course of action. Clean the old thermal compound off with some rubbing alcohol, apply a drop of new thermal compound to the CPU, affix the heat sink, done. There are a bazillion articles and videos on how to do this, of which this is one: maximumpc.com/article/howtos/…

comment Raid 5 Degraded
I believe you need to configure the new disk as a global hot spare and then the controller will rebuild it as a member of the array. Also, the "No Space Left" indicator has nothing to do with Windows booting. The "No Space Left" means that all of the available space on the physical disks has been allocated to virtual disks.

comment Raid 5 Degraded
It looks to me like you've got 2 RAID5 arrays configured across the same physical disks but only 2 physical disks in the array are Online. You've got another disk showing a Ready status and 1 disk showing a Spare status. I'm thinking you need to add the Ready disk to the RAID5 array to bring it out of it's degraded state. RAID5 requires a minimum of 3 drives.
