comment Chrome keeps opening new tabs as new windows
Yeah, I've solved this, there was a add on that was specifically doiing it.. I have a malware on my other computer that's adding adware chrome extensions, I've been unable to remove it. Because my computers are synced via google accounts, it keeps adding the same extensions to both computers. What a pain.

comment Boot setup option is being skipped, Windows launches right away
It's Windows 7, on a Toshiba Satalite with a clean Windows install. It usually does show the boot option. I appear to have resolved by constantly pressing F12 as I restarted it.

@happy_soil They all cover different questions, and are the results of different configurations.

are you accidently a word here? 'set the default router on your wireless router'? What setting needs configuring?

@Steve - Tracert provided no response. The router says Default Gateway: 0.0.0.0 (pppoa0)

comment 192.168.1.1 randomly switching between accessing VDSL modem, and accessing the wireless router.
Hey thanks, changing the IP address seemed to resolve my issues. Can you explain what disabling DHCP will do? Also - what actually happens when two devices have the same IP address?

@DavidPostill I figured 192.168.1.1 was automatically forwarding to the modem.

comment Mouse acting funny, opening/closing tabs
Device manager shows two HID compliant mice, and a PS/2 Compatable mouse. The PS/2 Compatable mouse isn't disablable, the HIDs are. One of the HIDs corresponds to my G500s mouse, and when disabled, the problem is still apparent if using the touch pad. I suspect the other HID mouse corresponds to an old mouse. I disabled that one, and the problem is still apparent. If I uninstall the PS/2 mouse, it requires restart, and the reinstalls it on boot.

Running chrome in incognito doesn't solve the tab problem.

comment Plot multiple sets of x,y data on a single chart
Best solution I have, is to consolidate all the Xs to one column, and then put the Ys on seperate columns. Works fine.

For the record, it's not for a letter, but a technical document where various variables change. Thanks for the pointer, I'll check that out.

comment Computer only accesses the internet when using a static DNS ip
The DD-WRT is a bit of a red herring for this issue, as plugging directly into the ZyXEL modem also has this issue.

comment Computer only accesses the internet when using a static DNS ip
Hmmm one clue here was that I had plugged the connected a LAN port of the ZyXEL modem-router with the WAN port of the DD-WRT router. I"ve remedied this, but 192.168.1.1 still directly accesses the ZyXEL.

Re: 'Anothe router in the network'. The ZyXEL is a modem-router.
