comment visit from 192.168.6.145 on my private 192.168.1.255 network?
What is the exact model of your Netgear router? In your router's settings pages, there's usually a place where you could change the LAN IP address (currently set to 192.168.1.1). Right under that will be the LAN subnet mask. Both the IP address and the subnet mask together determine the form of addresses allowed on a particular network. (If your Netgear's LAN subnet mask is 255.255.255.0, then the devices on the LAN can have addresses of the form 192.168.1.x. If the LAN subnet mask is 255.255.0.0, then the devices on that LAN can have addresses of the form 192.168.x.x.)

1. What is your Netgear's LAN subnet mask? 2. See if your Netgear has a list of connected devices. If 192.168.6.145 shows up with a name or MAC address, you may be able to guess what device it might be.

comment Why is Skype uploading data when I'm not even using it?
@terdon: In the image, Chrome is downloading at 17.51 KBps. Chloe's question is asking why Skype is uploading (0.63 KBps) and downloading (0.44 KBps) when it's not being used.

comment PuTTY: clear scrollback from commandline
What version of PuTTY are you using? The page indicates the feature works in PuTTY 0.59 and above. I have PuTTY 0.60 and it works for me. Note it only clears the scrollback buffer, it doesn't clear the screen. (If I have a scroll bar I can actually scroll, then use this sequence, I notice the scroll bar become disabled because there's suddenly nothing available to scroll to. But the currently displayed screen remains in place.)

comment Where is the information about the position of a window stored?
@Karan That number is -3 when the bits are treated as a signed value. Briefly: imagine an odometer with eight reels, and each reel has the digits 0 to 9 then A to F on it. If you start at 00000000 then click the odometer backwards three times, you end up at FFFFFFFD. For more detail: learn about binary, hexadecimal, and two's complement.

comment Where is the information about the position of a window stored?
@BenjiWiebe They're different things: 1. If a program remembers a window's position so it can put it in the same place next time, then the program gets to choose how and where it saves the window coordinates and size. It could save the values in the registry, a text file, or some other way. 2. If you are writing a program that makes a window, you should be able to specify the window's position and size when you create the window. I guess if you don't specify them, Windows will choose a default placement like you describe. Perhaps you can get more specific guidance on a programming forum.

comment “Limited” internet connection on Windows 7 & 8
If anyone wants to identify the router, be aware that Airlink 101 is a brand name. On their site, you can use the drop down box at the top-right ("Product Quick Find") to browse through their older products. It looks like all of their routers have model numbers that begin with AR.

comment “Limited” internet connection on Windows 7 & 8
Per the title of the question, Samuel A. seems to be getting a message the connection is "limited". He's already confirmed other WiFi connections work but this one doesn't. Samuel, you might ask your neighbor to restart their router and see if that helps. Also confirm the WiFi key with them, maybe it was accidentally changed.

I rolled back the revision that suggested the picture of the phosphor dots and LCD segments illustrated non-square pixels, and removed my downvote.
