comment Cannot use computer on local network as host for anything through wlan
Some routers separate wireless devices and wired devices from talking to each other, there might be a setting in the router to tweak that. Seems weird that port forwarding fixed your problem because that sorta implies you're on the other side of the modem.

comment USB 3.0 HDD not working
Are you using ubuntu in a vm or a fresh install? Because if you're using it through a vm, the problem won't fix itself. Vm's rely on the host os having a device working in order for the vm to detect it and use it. Could make a live cd maybe and boot up from it but I'm not sure if a live cd would have all the drivers you'd need. Maybe?

comment USB 3.0 HDD not working
I wonder if the cable you have is a usb 2 cable? I think usb 3 has more wires in it. You're probably using the one it came with, but just in case you're not or it didn't come with one there's that. I'd try uninstalling the usb ports and reinstalling with drivers off the boards manufacturer site. It could be that windows update installed drivers that maybe it shouldn't have. Also if that doesn't work do the same process but see if windows update has drivers. Sometimes windows update drivers fixes things for me, it's weird. Is the board in warranty? Might be able to replace it to fix it.

comment Programs like Visual Studio and Google Chrome kind of freeze
A fresh install would 'probably' fix the issues but that solution sucks unless you don't mind reinstalling a few things and don't have a lot to backup.

comment Connecting my PC to my router kills the internet connection (Windows 7)
NIC's are cheap so there's that, do you have more than one network adapter in your motherboard now? I know a lot come with 2 these days, could try the other one. Also, try updating your drivers from within device manager (right click -> "Update Driver Software"). I recently updated my realtek driver that way and it fixed some problems I was having.

Is it possible you're really low on disc space? You could have other things running like malware that are stealing resources and in return putting other apps on hold when memory or your processor are getting hammered by a different app.

@STTR Can I have your brain please. The fact that you knew all of those off the top of your head makes me a little bit jealous of your brain cells.

comment Make a specific program see the file-system differently on Windows
Editing the file/database to point to the new drive sounds like one solution though if you have to rename 50,000 songs find and replace would be ideal. They may have encrypted the db in a really easy algorithm possibly?

comment Laptop won't boot to either the CD/DVD or to a USB Flash Drive
I'm not sure if ubuntu does it but I know windows lets you start an install of an os while you're in windows and then it'll restart and initiate more of the install. Might be worth seeing if that's possible. Aw kinda missed the part where you were trying to run a standalone copy of ubuntu straight off the flash drive. Not sure the direction to take to do that, though I know there's a lot of tutorials for it around. As a side note, an easier solution might be to just create a virtual machine with virtual box inside windows.

comment Capture network traffic between VM's Virtualbox using Wireshark
Are you capturing all interfaces or just one? Might be that you're not monitoring all the nics you need to be but it sounds like you probably went over that.
