comment Slow network performance on wifi access point connected through powerline ethernet
For what it's worth, it was a goodwill router. Model doesn't look that old. I will look into replacing it to see if I can fix the problem.

comment Slow network performance on wifi access point connected through powerline ethernet
@Spiff If I put the routers on channels 6 and 11 @ 20Mhz band, respectively, with WMM on I get the same < 1 Mbps speed. Same if I put them both on the same channel (11). However, if I turn off WMM and put them on the same channel I get a good dl / upload speed. Do you know of a reason that WMM (or rather, using 802.11n / 802.11ac) would cause poor performance? I've updated my question with the router models & DD-WRT versions.

The performance was the same ~7 feet away (around 47 dBm)

@Spiff I also tried running the speed test on my laptop from the adjacent room. The laptop was about 3 feet away from the router with a wall between it. My laptop measures the signals in dB; I will try again in the suggested range.

comment Intel SSD setting all files to read only
@Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 What originally lead my to this assumption was on the first boot of windows not working, dropbox errored. I unchecked read-only on the dropbox folder and it worked again. Could it be that other files and folders not intended as read-only are being marked incorrectly?

@Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 I'm referring to folders. Yes, the marking is in a grayed out state (not a full check)

comment Macports installed applications no longer showing up
This was exactly my problem. I had PATH=$PATH:/opt/local/bin when I wanted PATH=/opt/local/bin:$PATH. So it was finding the out of date version of emacs first. Thank you.
