comment Some websites never finish loading
Just to reiterate: you have a cable modem/router in one unit. You have two PCs connected to two of the ports in the back of the router. If you open web browsers on both PCs, and navigate to the same web page at the same time from each PC, PC 1 always works. PC 2 sometimes works and sometimes times out. Is all that correct?

comment Some websites never finish loading
I know you mentioned that another PC works fine on the same router, but are you able to bypass the router with the problem PC and connect directly to the internet? It would be nice to completely rule out the router if possible.

comment Some websites never finish loading
If you click the refresh button on the browser for a site that failed, does it then load, or maybe it loads after a couple of refreshes?

comment Why redirecting FINDSTR output produce UNIX line ending?
The findstr function is probably not relevant. Likely it's just that the file is in unix format to begin with. See ansgar's answer: stackoverflow.com/questions/17579553/…

comment Port Forwarding to make my localhost available for everyone
Can you hit your webserver from another machine on the internal network using the internal IP? Try both 80 and 800.

comment DHCP letting multiple devices get same IP address - how to trouble shoot?
Are you sure the APs are all "getting" the IP from the DHCP server? Maybe they are mistakenly statically assigned to the same IP?

comment Disable taskbar tooltips in windows 7
So far, shift-right-click has been working for me. I prefer to do this every once in a while rather than completely disable the tooltips.

comment Cannot send encrypted message to others using Outlook 2010
Did you ever solve this? If so, how? If not, does wiping out the email address in the To field and retyping it in work for you? I have the same issue and that's what I have to do...

comment Any screen management software for Windows 7?
@Phazyck: this should work for Youtube: Win+Right Arrow (twice), F. To get out of full screen, Esc.

How about use a wireless mouse from where you can see both monitors?

comment Why are cloud servers way cheaper as compared to dedicated one?
Why are cars more expensive than houses? Answer: depends on the car, and depends on the house. And btw, typically dedicated servers are cheaper than the equivalent hardware running 24/7 in the cloud, not the other way around.

comment One computer causes massive increase in ping / ms
How much time elapses between when her computer connects to the internet, and when your connection becomes slow? A few seconds, minutes? And does the problem happen if her computer is connected, but not in use (I mean just sitting there.)? And answer JohnnyVegas' question too: wireless or wired? Does switching her connection to the other make a difference?

comment Have 2 Routers on the same ADSL2 Internet Connection
Are you sure your router is what's connecting to the VPN? Typically you would connect to the VPN via software on your computer. So you just disconnect from the VPN on your computer rather than connecting to a different router.
