comment Why do I lose my 3G connection when I connect to my new wireless access point?
Yes, it seems. You need either to use fixed ip configuration (not use dhcp) at your notebook for wifi adapter and should not set any gateway on it or, alternatively, you should set up the DHCP service at your AP in a way that it does not configure the clients to use it as a default gateway. Check the page 37 of tp-link.com/resources/document/TL-WA830RE_V2_User_Guide.pdf : the Default Gateway field must be empty.

Check that your wifi interface does not bring up the default route over it (see the output of route print command on windows or just route on linux).

Just checked with its man page - there is no such option.

comment Transmission - 'Growing' files
As I mentioned, it is implementation dependent. The Transmission client writes each segment into its exact location in the file(s). I suppose this is done to simplify the tracking of the stuff and to avoid later reordering of segments. Also, it simplifies the restart of the transmission when you stop the client and start it again later (for example, you switched off your PC as it is to noisy to let you sleep :)

comment Linux cannot alter partition table of main hard disk of my laptop
What the fdisk -l /dev/sda reports? BTW, delete your own answer - it is not an answer, it is a comment to your question. As you are the OP it actually should be an update to your question. I added it to the question though.

@Hennes then we may say that the OP will not see the performnace degradation but perhaps (s)he will see the increase

However, if the aim is to provide some notebook that has the parallel IDE interface with extra disk space, then I believe that this tandem will perform equally to the native PATA drive. What you think?

comment Clarification of the difference between PCI memory addressing and I/O addressing?
No. Not necessarily RAM. It may be an array of IO registers in the device. It may be onboard RAM (regular). It may be some RAM at the device (for device purposes, not as a general RAM

comment Capture data that my ADSL modem send
Doubtfully. Its definitely faster to find a tool to connect to modem's JTAG and read the content of the flash. As you may wait years until someone from your ISP decides to remote connect to your device..

While it is of course theoretically possible, it will be really hard to implement. Could you explain the use case, please?

comment Reverse lookup of inode/file from offset in raw device on linux and ext3/4?
It is definitely possible and a few years ago I saw the HOWTO somewhere in the internet. The trick involves some math on different parameters of the filesystem and partition table. Try to search for it. This could be useful: unix.stackexchange.com/questions/37119/…

comment About Wireless Router with 1:1 NAT Function
Then by some WiFi access point if it save some money. I believe your current router is capable to handle many clients and that you misuse 1:1 related to the NAT in this case at least.
