Common problem with "answers" on SE (especially software related sites).... "We can't help you because you're not specific enough".

Short response: this is a faulty type of answer because it profoundly fails the "what are we doing with our time on earth" question, and it's also as you may have notices, not an answer; what makes SE great is that it serves (in conjunction with google) as an crowd-INDEXED knowledge repository. I'm not sure the articles in this knowledge repository should satisfy any other criterium besides "is it, in itself, the answer to a question?", and I would go further to say that using any other criteria is toxic to the system. Responses to OPs of the form "not specific enough" are not answering questions and are causing more toxic pollution to the system than anything else.

And besides, is that what you were put on earth to do?

comment Can I tell if there's a Wifi Repeater on my network?
None of these seem to answer the OP. Wifi Repeaters (an official spec) don't add any MACs or IPs to the network AFAIK.

Yes, they were. My question is, how do I add power to USB /WITHOUT/ a hub?
