comment Unable to locate Java 7 on OSX
Well this is awkward. I had installed the JRE and was searching for Java. But still, the JRE installation does not change the default java of the system (java -version still says 1.6 even if I have JRE 1.7). I will add my own answer

No. I did not change the default location.

comment Unable to locate Java 7 on OSX
I don't see a 1.7 version at all. When I say /usr/libexec/java_home -v 1.7.0_40 I get the error Unable to find any JVMs matching version "1.7.0_40". From the article you had mentioned, Java 1.7 should be present in /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines but there is only 1.6.0.jdk there. My problem is I know Java 7 is installed on my machine, but I don't know where. (Updated question with screenshot of the Java Control Panel showing the version)

You are correct. I think it is just a single network on two wireless frequencies. I just checked the DHCP table and all my devices are listed. in the same IP range (192.168.1.*)

Can Bonjour work across networks? Meaning that iTunes searches for all airport expresses around? I find it odd because the airport express is explicitly connected to one network and the Airport Express is explicitly connected to another. Also, I think I have two different networks, at least thats what he manual of the router says: the Router can create two simultaneous yet separate Wireless-N networks, one using the Wireless-N 5 GHz band and one using the Wireless-N 2 .4 GHz band.

The Mac and other computers are connected to the 5Ghz. The iPhone and Airport Express is connected to the 2.4 GHz. Will edit to make it clear.

comment What gets uploaded when I surf the web?
@Debabratta a separate request is sent for each resource. One for the page (with the content - text, markup - layouts etc), one each for the various images, javascript files, css files that are referred in the page. (Sometimes the browser uses the cache - the copy of the image that you downloaded the last time you visited the page. But this also involves a request to see whether the image has changed). Requests from flash, silverlight or other such plug ins also add up.
