comment Access a router remotely using another router
How are the two routers connected to each other (if at all)? Is the other computer connected to the Linksys router located off-site? If so, then you'll ultimately need an internet connection to reach it.

comment Use DHCP to only assign specific ip addresses to certain host names
This is easily done in pfSense: in DHCP Server settings, add clients that you want to allow obtaining IPs from the server, then ticking the Deny unknown clients option.

comment Cannot load router interface in Win8.1, even though ip address, DNS, etc all set correctly
According to your router's manual, the default IP is set to 192.168.1.254. Assuming you haven't manually configured a different one, try that IP. This is all assumes you're not confusing 192.168.1.1 as the IP of your machine, not the router's.

comment How to set Firefox to open any/all links in a new tab?
Save a few clicks more by simply clicking the link with your mousewheel! Holding CTRL + Left Mouse Click works too.

Are you using your actual external IP when trying to access it remotely, i.e. http://MyExternalIP:Port/gui?

comment Tplink router dont allow me to connect to the network PC's. Internet is working fine
What's the purpose of this second (presumably) TP-Link wireless router? By "WAN connection" you mean an existing wireless network? How are you connecting this TP-Link router to the "WAN connection?" How are your friends connecting to the internet: through this WAN connection or the TP-Link router?

comment How secure it is to open home router to public?
+1 I'd add the use of virtual machines. Spin up some VMs, set up roles, set up portforwarding, and you won't have to sacrifice your host machine or your entire network's security.

Graphical glitch maybe? A screenshot would be really helpful here.

comment Does a power-supply for a computer typically have temperature modulated fan control?
It depends. Modern power supplies do this. Others even shut it off completely when load is at a minimum. Replace the fan with a similar spec one.

@Celeritas I haven't seen any option to disable this behaviour. Good to hear that it's working for you though.

comment Can lastpass automatically prompt you for password when Firefox is first launched?
@Celeritas if I close the browser and open it again I have to log in - isn't this what you want? The latter part is set as such because those two settings are mutually inclusive.

comment Sharing “mapping” an audio device or mic to another PC.
I used to run a similar program called iSpy. You can add microphone audio together with the video feed (handy if your cameras have mic built-in). Since it operates in a client-server configuration, the client simply pipes all data to the server.
