comment How can I retrieve the ip of my access point?
Ignore the Interface. Perform the configuration reset procedure that is documented for your device. Then reinstall it as a new device.

comment why does my local hosts file enable me to see remote server php files?
The host probably setup an additional virtual host configuration that had the PHP engine disabled. By adding a host entry you were instructing your system to use the alternate virtual host config.

comment How to Run Teamviewer in Linux Mint as the root user?
I have made my system default - You what? Why? Some software is specifically designed to refuse to run as root because it would result in major security issues.

comment How can I check if my ISP is intercepting DNS queries sent to alternative DNS servers?
I would start by doing a traceroute to the servers you think may be intercepting. I think there are even tools that could do a UDP based traceroute with the port set to 53. See where the replies come from.

@Ramhound he is talking about an ISP using something like NAT or route trickery to make something like Google's DNS be redirected to the ISP DNS servers. Something like this. serverfault.com/questions/672472/…

comment Remove write protection of flash drive from firmware
Could be, sometimes things fail. If it is only two months old I would be tempted to still see if the place you purchased it from will replace it.

This might be a indication that your flash drive dieing. Some drives go into a read-only mode when they are failing.

comment Why I can't see the users that I have created
Your update doesn't really change anything. The answer is still 'because it is a DC'.

What do you mean you can't see them in your local users and groups? If the are AD accounts then they are NOT local users/groups. You wouldn't see them there. AD accounts are not local accounts.

comment How do I remove the default program associated with an .exe in Windows 7?
If you haven't disabled System Restore, this might be a time to use it. If your last restore point wasn't that long ago anyway?

comment How do I tell if my Memory is ECC or Non-ECC?
Look up the motherboard manual, or the system manual for your system, and see what is required for your hardware? Use the memory suggestion tools on the various RAM vendors web sites?

comment How to find out the user who changed the MySQL root password?
You can change passwords over the network, or through software that would leave no logs. If your server is open to the network I can use my local mysql client. Or a password might be changed by some software like a PHPMyAdmin, or something else if that is on the web server. There may simple be no logs.

comment What do I have to do to have FDE + a good keyboard?
@MichaelFrank probably my fault. I wasn't as detailed as I could have been when I asked the question. I have updated the question with the details from the comments.

comment What do I have to do to have FDE + a good keyboard?
@JulianKnight I have been intermittently searching for solutions to this problem for months, so don't feel bad about it not being easy. :( I upgraded to the DAS4 partly because I couldn't use the LogitechG11 to enter the passwords. I haven't tried waiting a bit, but I don't think that will help. I tried creating a ticket on the DAS support a couple months ago, but I think I got ignored, lost or something. I suppose I should try creating another.

comment What do I have to do to have FDE + a good keyboard?
Yes, I have tried unplugging everything else. Even with only the keyboard connected I see no indication of any activity when typing.

comment What do I have to do to have FDE + a good keyboard?
Bitlocker at least displays a * for each character typed into the password inputbox. Even if the keys were not mapped correctly I would still expect to see it recognising that I was pressing the keys. Nothing shows when I type on the DAS4 or Logitech. It is as if not even connected. The password is ~30 characters that match the regex [-_a-zA-Z0-9.,$^]. Everything is set to US.

comment How do computers generate random numbers
The answers here are OK, but I bet if you had asked this on the security site you would have gotten lots of answers. Generating random numbers securely is extremely critical for encryption. It is extremely complex, and there is a huge variety of techniques with different complexity and performance. security.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/prng security.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/random

comment Hyper-v error: Virtual Machine could not be started because the hypervisor is not running
What was the arch of the VM you booted? I am pretty sure at least some versions of vmware workstation will let you boot a 32bit VM even if the BIOS virtualization features are not enabled.
