comment Is it possible to merge my ISP and cellphone Internet access? I want to split download and upload
You know, this question is actually different than the ones this question is linked to and claimed to be a duplicate of. Those are about generally merging connections, this question is more than that.

comment Is a 7200rpm USB 3.0 drive going to have very similar performance to an internal 7200rpm drive or is it still going to be noticeably slower?
@Moab - not true. It depends what you're comparing to. USB 3 can support up to 5Gbps (inc overhead), that's much quicker than SATA II, but not as fast as SATA III. If you have an SSD drive attached, it'll fly past a drive connected to SATA II.

comment detect DHCP server on a wired network
You can probably tell if the DHCP server is a router if the default route IP is the same IP as the DHCP server.

comment Is there a way to set a static IP's last 3 digits only in linux?
@Sirex, he wants the host part of the address to be static and the network part to be dynamic. It won't be unique unless he knows exactly which clients are connecting with what IP's. Reservations based on the client MAC are the only option.

That would totally break DHCP. The whole address needs to be unique on a LAN, not part of it. If it were even possible, clashes would be common. However, you can set some routers to always give the same IP to specific MAC addresses which could achieve something close to what you're asking.

comment Does streaming use the same amount of bandwidth as downloading?
@stemie, It'll be close. Different protocols add protocol overhead. But if there was no transcoding or quality/rate change during the streaming process then it should be the same amount of video data in theory.

Just to clarify your question. By bandwidth you are referring to data rate, not file (movie) size?
