comment Intermittent wifi connection issues even when right next to router (Linksys EA4500)
I've voted to move this over to Superuser, where they deal better with consumer-level gear. Serverfault is for professional environments. Good luck!

comment Port Forwarding on a router to a dynamic IP running Linux
Honestly we're trying to help you. We deal with professional equipment here. Superuser deals much more frequently with home equipment, and they'll be able to give you a better answer. As with all SE sites, do yourself a favor and read the help page before posting to ensure that your question is on topic.

comment Setting up networking on Virtualbox Guest to access Host VPN
Well those likely should be closed or migrated as well. Virtualbox is a desktop virtualization solution, not a proper server virtualization solution.

comment Setting up networking on Virtualbox Guest to access Host VPN
I didn't downvote, but those that did likely did so due to the fact that this is much more of a user question than a sysadmin question. It probably would have been better received over at Superuser.

Why bother troubleshooting? Just re-install with your image. Should be back up and running in an hour...

comment Shrew Soft VPN - “session terminated by gateway”
In that case, I'm afraid this question is off-topic for here. You need to work with the IT departments that manage the VPN servers, as they're the only ones that have authoritative information on how things are configured and how to get your access fixed up.

Are you in control of the VPNs you're connecting to?

comment Why is virtualbox networking using virtio slow (bridged and host-only, Debian)
What @MichaelHampton is hinting at is that VBox is a desktop virtualization solution, akin to VMware Workstation. You should not be running anything of importance on it. There are plenty of other high-performance options out there that should be used instead of Virtualbox. VMware, Hyper-V, XenServer, KVM, etc.

comment Small bootable flash drive for Mac
You're going to need OSX installation media, whether on optical media, or downloaded from the app store. There's no getting around that.
