comment Computer only booting after POWER ON/OFF 10 times or more?
I had a problem with a gateway desktop where the power button was sticking, so it would start run for about 10 seconds, then shutdown. What was happening was the computer was interpreting that the button was being held, just as you would do when you want to force a computer to turn off. If you're happy that that is not the problem, swap the power supply out.

comment Help with router and spotty wireless
Is there a "reset" button on the wireless, to set it back an unconfigured state? Try this also - turn off wireless on your computer and connect it to the router using an ethernet cable. Check if you can access it configuration that way.

comment Concern over running WireShark as root
In general, yes/no. Better not to use root where you can get by without it. But if this is just your home machine and you're not going to bring down your office network/servers, fire away. In relation to wireshark, I think you'll be safe enough.
