comment Can my landlord access my personal network because he controls the upstream connection?
Good answer, although note that YOU will likely be able to see more of HIS network, if he's not been careful with how he set his router up....

comment Computer shutting down after playing a graphical game
Agreed, the original Core2Duo's were fairly power hungry, and a decent Q6600 system was getting close to marginal with 500w back then. With an R9 sucking even more juice, and no doubt a PSU the same age as the CPU (so 5 years worth of capacity wear), the PSU is the likely culprit

comment Block P2P traffic on a Linksys router WRT54G with Tomato firmware
I'd generally agree with this - a determined user can get around almost anything (I directed all my traffic over DNS while at uni to get around a block)... But techniques mentioned in other answers will certainly deter casual users, or in fact anyone without a significant determination to do it. You probably don't have many of them on a 12 user network

comment I've got a row of laptops that I would like to be identical
Sysprep is a fantastic tool, although if you're only doing one run the time taken to learn it will probably be comparable to cloning the HDD onto each machine, and cloning has less chance of you messing it up.

comment Can't connect to network (wired/wireless), can't do anything about it?
I am the IT staff. It's a very small company and I've (somehow) acquired the network. Thanks for your suggestions, I'd already tried all 4, however, and none worked. I fail to see how it's off topic. It's a question about a networking issue on a corporate network.

I've added the OS and laptop make - I mentioned in the original question that it was on a domain and at work, so I figured people would assume a corporate network. Windows Sever 2012 runs DNS+DHCP, Ethernet through a switch and 802.11n via a different switch and a Draytek access point both have the same issue.
