comment “Safe” personal router use on apartment-wide network
You'll want a router that allows you to set a custom MAC address for the wan port (sometimes called MAC address cloning). This will allow you to change the router's MAC address to something else, which will make it less obvious that you are using your own router.

comment Extremely slow download speed but reletively good downstream
If your neighbour has the same problem, then there's a very good chance the DSLAM (ISP's local neighbourhood equipment) is congested or defective. Your ISP is not supposed to charge you for a service call unless they can prove the service works properly after replacing your modem or fixing an inside wiring issue.If they are blaming your router, they still have to show you a working connection when Pc is connected directly to the modem

comment Extremely slow download speed but reletively good downstream
"My downstream rates are around 10 000 - 15 000 Kbps but my downloads are extremely bad." Are you reading this information from your modem's signal page? Can you post the other details, such as SNR/Noise Margin, and Attenuation? Does your neighbour have the same problem?

comment How do I configure my ASUS Router RT-N53 to point to one of my computers
That's hardly an issue, for most people their IP address doesn't change unless their internet disconnects... in which case 5 minutes of downtime is perfectly acceptable for a home-grade setup.

I would also like to know if it's possible to gamestream your windows desktop, as I find Splashtop interesting but could be faster.

comment Windows Fonts and Colors on HDTV (Plasma)
panasonic plasma p54s1, nvidia 410m laptop HDMI, windows 8.1. I played with cleartype tuner, but obviously I didn't try all the settings. It's probably not just fonts.
