comment 1 modem 2 routers with independant networks
This only 'just works' if the modem has a built-in router. I don't think this one does.

comment Why copying files in one partition is much faster than copying files to another partition?
@AmirrezaNasiri: If the destination is on the same partition, no files are physically moved. The file system maintains a table which is updated to reflect the fact that a certain range of bytes on the hard drive now makes up a file in a different directory. Updating this table requires very little data to be written. Moving files to a different partition involves the data itself being written to another part of the hard drive.

comment is it possible to get IP address of a wifi that you are not connected to
This will not reveal the public IP address of the network and local IP addresses would only be visible if no wifi encryption is used.

comment Why is it bad for me if my computer is infected, if I don't notice?
Then perhaps 'unrealistic' was a poor choice of words on my part, because indeed what you describe can happen and has happened, but something so easily dismissed as unlikely, won't be a convincing argument. In determining whether to get a newer OS, no one writes 'avoid possible jail time' and 'may get hit by bus on way to computer store' on a pros and cons list.

This is unrealistic. The suggestion to hand over evidence to the police in an attempt to convince them of your innocence is far more likely to put you in jail than running an outdated operating system (and you should do neither).

What do you mean by 'without stopping until the config stops by itself'?
