comment Does it make sense that the lower a router is to the floor, the worse my reception?
There are several mistakes in this answer. For instance, you CAN combine signals from multiple antennas (maximal-ratio combining), and you can transmit on all antennas without making a phased array (else 802.11n MIMO would not work as well - there is a trick to avoid making a phased array, which 802.11n uses). Oh, and reflections are good for MIMO.

comment Using UDF on a USB flash drive
@romeovs: I did not partition the drive. That is the whole point of zeroing it, to remove the partition table and old filesystem leftovers and put the UDF filesystem in the whole unpartitioned drive. Creating a partition table would only risk confusing things.

Instead of all that dd dance, just use file -s /dev/sda.

comment What is USB root hub?
@Torpido: not 3 chips, but 3 cores within the same chip (probably the southbridge chip in your case). Yes, they look to the operating system as if they were 3 separate chips.
