comment Mobile Broadband, Windows, Router routing
you need at least 1 wire to make this work - from the router to the computer that has the wifi network. It's a very challenging setup, you'd best get a router that can act as a repeater, that's the most sane solution.

comment Mobile Broadband, Windows, Router routing
if you turn on internet connection sharing in windows, Windows will act as a DHCP server, so the router DHCP has to be off. You don't need assign manual IPs on the other computers. While doing your testing it's easier to try with 2 computers at once and remove the router from the setup.

comment Restricting router bandwidth for others only when I need it
This is mostly a myth. Inbound QoS has improved to a point where it is highly effective in almost every scenario (with latest Shibby or Toastman firmware) In my experience though, setting up QoS requires a lengthy experimentation phase. Think weeks, not days or hours. My Guide is here. linksysinfo.org/index.php?threads/…

comment Why does computer slow down after not using for a long time?
Resource monitor (available from task manager I believe) can help you pinpoint which process is accessing the hard disk the most, (assuming high CPU usage has been ruled out) As others have said, updates/antivirus are the likely culprit... especially if you only use the computer occasionally. Try turning off automatic updates and move on from there.

comment How to mitigate BufferBloat on an ADSL connection?
If you're not using a recent version of Tomato, such as a Shibby or Toastman, (Tiomo Ingress QoS), your QoS is broken

comment DSL vs Cable internet?
This is an old story, albeit partially true. Cable networks can be congested at peak hours, but only if your ISP has not built enough capacity. DSL can still be congested higher up in the infrastructure, so it's not a "dedicated link" to the internet either.

comment 3rd Party Windows Lockscreen app for quick breaks?
This was a good solution, but isn't compatible with multi-monitors, and seems to be fairly easy to override, so I'm now looking for other options.

comment Adding a DSL modem as a client device in a wireless network
This is correct. The ideal setup is for your Router to have the public IP address, and the modem functions in bridge mode. You want to avoid dual NAT. If your ISP uses PPPoE, simply removing your credentials from the Modem and inserting them into the router could do the trick. If your ISP uses DHCP, you can probably still use bridge mode, but might require more config.
