comment IP reservation on Belkin N300 router
I would try to disable DHCP on the printer and set an IP address manually (outside the DHCP pool). Your router does not appear to support IP reservation as it is a fairly low-end model. Also it is not compatible with DD-WRT after all.

comment Ugly fonts on several Google sites in Firefox and Chrome
That is actually an image not text so it will not have the same problem. I don't mean to keep going on about ClearType but I should point out that it can be heavily customised so that it barely affects most fonts but still has a positive effect on the ones that need it most.

There are two levels - font-smoothing (sevenforums.com/tutorials/…) which is pixel-level anti-aliasing and ClearType which affects monitor subpixels. Have you disabled both or just ClearType? Also, are you sure you are running your monitor at the correct resolution? It seems strange that you find ClearType rendering "ugly" as it is meant to improve the appearance of text.

Can you post a screenshot of the DHCP client page?

comment IP reservation on Belkin N300 router
You have many options. If your router supports it, you may be able to assign an IP address based on MAC address - check the DHCP section. If not, you could increase the lease time of the IP address to reduce the frequency of the changes. Alternatively you may be able to turn off DHCP on the printer and set a static IP address manually. Lastly, you may be able to install DD-WRT on your router which definitely supports IP reservation.

comment Do you lose quality converting from a lossy audio format to a lossless format?
To be pedantic, technically you can actually still lose quality when converting to a lossless format. If you convert a JPEG to an 8 bit PNG file for instance, you would be losing colour information. Same can apply to music files based on sample rate, bit depth etc.

comment IE7 persistently displays “friendly” error message, instead of HTTP error code
The article I linked to basically says that the error page must be 512 bytes or bigger or IE won't show it. Are you not able to change the error page/template?

This may be relevant: stackoverflow.com/questions/11544048/…. Is there no chance they will let you install Firefox?
