comment Why would the Wi-Fi connection on my smartphone perform better than the same connection on my laptop?
@AG Not if the router's problem is that it implements the 802.11n spec inconsistently, so that it handles some clients well and other clients poorly. If so, it could well be that the phone is "lucky" (or has extra steps to work around these foibles) and avoids the issues, while the laptop is subject to the degraded performance.

comment How do I prevent Excel from locking files by default?
That doesn't appear to work with CSV files (which makes sense as they have nowhere to store metadata). Plus the files are created by an automated FTP fetch, so unless a Unix process could set this flag I don't think this approach will bear fruit.

comment Define if a pc is in LAN using Java
I wonder if we might be missing the bigger picture here. Why is it that you want to know whether there's a direct LAN connection? Perhaps there's an alternative check/piece of information that will serve the same purpose.

I've voted to move this to SuperUser, since that site is more suited for questions about installing and running programs.
