comment Windows 7 - Connecting to PC on same network asking for username and password
Logging into a computer as a user and connecting to a file share as that user are two separate things. You don't have to be logged into COMPUTER2 as any user in order to access the shared folder from COMPUTER1. If the computer is running, the folder is shared, and the user has access, you should be all set. Ignore my 3rd paragraph if it's easier.

comment RDP into my server works except on a specific network
Does the server you're trying to remote into have any firewall settings that might be blocking traffic from your work network specifically? Also see if your home and work networks are the same network type (public, guest or private) in Network and Sharing Center. If not, your laptop itself could have different firewall settings for each location you're working from -- i.e., the work profile could be more restrictive than home.

comment Hostapd doesn't work consistently to set up access point
When you say it "only works about half of the time", what does it do the other half of the time? We need logs or other details.

comment Ethernet connection fails in virtual machine (linux mint 17 KDE)
Just something to check: /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules, see if the rule for eth0 contains the correct MAC address of your NIC. I've had to change that in the past if I re-used an old .vdi file with a new VM settings.

comment How does Windows automatically name a network?
Interesting. Maybe it uses WINS? Not sure if WINS is enabled by default in dnsmasq.

comment Restored godaddy DNS Config gives “DNS Reverse” error
Are you getting this DNS reverse error when you do nslookup? Maybe you need to add a PTR record. That is what a reverse lookup will check. This translates your IP address back into your hostname.

comment How does Windows automatically name a network?
On a domain network, it seems to take the name of the domain itself. At home, it seems to me that it takes the name it assigns the network connection (e.g. at home mine is just Ethernet). I have two wired network adapters on my home computer and it named them Ethernet 1 and Ethernet 2. This is in Win 8.1.

comment Set netgear router to AP mode cannot get in web interface
If you plugged it into the WAN port on the consumer router, you may want to try one of the other ports instead. Those are LAN ports, since you're establishing an AP instead of a new NAT network, your consumer router and pro router will need to be on the same subnet. The WAN port may work differently -- it might think it's still an internet connection.

comment Can't access web domain on Win7 PC, how to find what is causing the block?
Is anything in your hosts file that points to that domain? It could contain a hard-coded wrong IP address which would cause the browser to visit that IP instead of the one the DNS server provides.

comment Networking a small office with VPN
I'm trying to understand how using two WANs with a VPN would even work. You'd obviously have a different IP/hostname on each ISP, so which one would you connect to when establishing the connection? Or do you mean, once the connection is established, have the ability to bounce betwen them? I don't see how that could work without risking the security/integrity of the tunnel.

comment Can a 7 days full 100% CPU load “burn-in” / “stress test” damage a modern notebook?
For most consumers, it is not economical to plan on keeping a laptop or any device for only one year.
