comment How to add support for wireless networking WPA2-PSK [AES] on Windows
Shouldn't it be Service Pack 3? (IIRC, you need either SP2+hotfix or SP3)

comment Ad-Hoc Wireless Network Connectivity
I did do my homework. I only forgot to explicitly mention that by "ad-hoc" most people mean an IBSS (since "ad-hoc" is what the user interface says in these cases), which indeed does no forwarding.

comment Should I Upgrade My Old Wireless Router?
@Ilari Kajaste: that page is from Nov 14, 2008 (look at the footer), there seems to be a newer exploit from 2009 for WPA: networkworld.com/news/2009/… (and yes, CCMP/AES is still safe).

802.11b is not dead; the 1, 2, 5.5, and 11 speeds of 802.11 b/g are all from 802.11b. And the beacons used by 802.11g are all at 1Mbps, so even a pure 802.11g network still needs 802.11b.

comment What are these? Are they broken?
@Chris Farmer: no, I am suggesting they being damaged could cause noise in the system. It takes more than mere noise to damage them, after all their purpose is to filter the noise out. However, if they short out (or, in some situations, become open) it can cause more than just letting electrical noise out.

comment Using UDF on a USB flash drive
One slight problem is that it is not my Mac. I would rather not have to install a driver in other people's computers.

comment How to extend Wi-Fi signal across rooms?
No matter how many antennas your router has, if it only has 1 radio (very common even if it has more than one antenna), it will cut your speed in half. The only way to avoid it is to use 2 radios in 2 different channels (both radios can, of course, share the same antenna).
