comment What are the options for using Microsoft Office products on Linux?
Are there any online consumer services that let you stream Windows apps in a Citrix-like fashion? Sorta like OnLive, but for software.

comment TP-Link router sometimes fails to negotiate proper IP address
Thank you for clarifying what's happening. That explains why my hosts are getting a public IP address from the ISP when I get internet access. Oddly enough, I have been able to get multiple hosts online simultaneously, each with their own public IP. Does this mean that the ISP has reserved multiple addresses for this home? The cable box does have a built-in router, but the family member had it disabled for reasons unknown to me. I'll discuss the situation with them to see what they want.

I've updated my post. The cable box also has some non-internet cables (telephone and digital TV) plugged in to it, but I left them out for the sake of simplicity. Does this give you the information you need?

comment Windows 8 no longer sends sound to headphones when plugged in
Does this reinstate the auto-switching behavior? I can no longer reproduce the problem so I can't verify your proposed solution. I think it may have been driver-related in my case, because I'm currently using the default Windows 8 driver instead of the one that the manufacturer supplied.
