comment 802.1X: What EXACTLY is it regarding WPA and EAP?
@Brain2000. Careful, your oversimplified restatement is very misleading. It may be true that some APs have crappy UIs that misleadingly say just "802.1X" when what they really mean is "802.1X with dynamic WEP". But 802.1X is an extensible authentication protocol for LANs that is not specific to 802.11, much less WEP.

comment In a BIND.. Weird DNS issue
So, you had an A-record that maps Host1.sub.example.com to 192.168.1.254, and when a device on the LAN asked your BIND server for the A-record for host1.sub.example.com, it got back 192.168.1.254 like you expected. But when a device outside of your LAN queried the DNS system (not necessarily your BIND server directly?) for the A-record for host1.sub.example.com, whatever DNS resolving server it sent the query to, responded with the public IP address of your BIND server? Do you have packet traces of the working and failing cases?

comment Can telnet but nslookup fails
@DanielB You should post that as an Answer. It's almost certainly correct. nslookup uses DNS only, not /etc/hosts, not WINS, not local broadcast-based NetBIOS Name Service, not LLMNR, not Multicast DNS (a.k.a. mDNS, IETF ZeroConf, Apple Bonjour), not any other possible name->IP resolution service that might be enabled on that PC.

comment Router won't work after copying a file there through ssh
You bricked your box. How to unbrick varies. You'll have to tell us the exact model and hardware revision of your box if you want us to Google the proper unbricking procedures for you.

comment FTP: executable file changing to a text file during download
Your solution may well be correct, but your cutesy story is BS. Text mode has always transferred in 8 bit mode, it just changes line endings between UNIX (and modern Mac) style LFs, DOS style CRLFs, and VAX/VMS (and classic Mac) CRs.

comment Time Warner Cable Ping Spikes
Maybe you have bufferbloat problems? Go to dslreports.com/speedtest to run a speed test that also measures latency. Do it once when you're not seeing the ping spike problem, to get a baseline. Then do it again when you see the ping spike problem. BTW, what is "9k ping"? Is that 9 seconds (9 kilo-microseconds)?

comment Recovering/repairing partition map following Linux installation/removal
@CraigOtis Well, what did you change the GUID to? And was it properly readable/writable, just not bootable? Or was it still not even readable?

comment Install OSX on NTFS? Want windows compatibility with file sizes > 4gb
@Ramhound Careful, OS X supports reading NTFS without third party software. But yes, OS X cannot be installed on an NTFS partition, because it needs to be able to write to the partition it's installed on, and it can't do that natively on NTFS.
