comment Force Windows 7 to use Android phone's MAC address as network identifier for hotspot to prevent network name addition/iteration
@RogUE: (1) I do not actually have an option "Network Connections" to go to under "Network and Internet," the closest is "Connect to a network," and (2) if that is what you mean for me to "delete all connections," I only have one connection, to my hotspot, which I have disconnected with seven times previously, and when I "connect to" it again, it iterates a new number. So I am not sure what you intend.

@RogUE: That the iteration of the number attached to the name is at 8, i.e. I've logged onto this network eight times now, and am getting tired of it continuously iterating a new number with each logon.

@RogUE: I hate to state the obvious, but I mention Windows 7 multiple times in the question.

revised Subscript/Superscript Hotkey for Excel 2010 Macro?
Fixed comment for the bracketed version (said it would subscript when it superscripts); also added extra words since I needed more than 6 characters for it to take the edit

comment Get Windows localhost (port 80) to forward to port 8080 for Apache service
@harrymc--Thank you for all your time, efforts, and thoughts on this. I agree, there is something I'm missing in how the network address handling is being done that is preventing me from achieving my goal. While the bounty has ended, my issue has not. When I get it resolved, I'll be back to post my findings.
