comment Is the external IP of my wireless Router my WAN IP / Public IP address ? if not then what is it?
@goblinbox I'm all for learning old stuff but know that it's old and not done anymore. Cisco courses are known to be wrong on this issue, and hence students of cisco are often corrected on it, and are surprised to hear that classes aren't used anymore. And the OP didn't use the term class, this answerer introduced the incorrect terminology of Class.

comment How to troubleshoot and diagnose “Write Failed: broken pipe” on SSH connection?
re how to avoid a "broken pipe” , don't buck her off high into the air and let her land on it. As for ssh, well, maybe wireshark will give you further hints

You write "Subnetting has to do with routing packets " <-- And guess what layer that/IP/Routing is. It's Layer 3. And guess what layer modems don't deal with - layer 3. Guess what modems don't deal with - routing. So when you're saying "subnet between modem and router." and "Subnetting has to do with routing packets" you're obviously not realizing that modems don't operate at layer 3.

@qasdfdsaq seriously? Technically, routers don't have DHCP servers any more than modems do.. Though it is common that the boxes described as Routers also have a DHCP server. It is also not uncommon that the boxes described as modems are routers too, and that they have have DHCP server too. These are boxes.. with functions. Router is a function. Modem is a function. DHCP server is a function. Granted though, that when they have a DHCP function they tend to have a router function. And when they have a modem function they may or may not have a DHCP function.

Modems don't assign IPs. And modems don't have IPs. These devices are boxes with particular functions. You have to figure out what functions these boxes have. From my experience of cable modems , cable modems tend to just be cable modems, not having additional functionality.

You write "the Class C private 192.xxx.xxx.xxx area." <-- You're aware classes haven't been used in about 20+ years, right? CIDR(classless....) was introduced long ago and IANA no longer restrict themselves to the subnets decreed by the classful system. And routers no longer use the classful method to determine subnet mask. And it'd always have been a bit misleading to talk of the private addresses as being classful, because the subnet masks of the private addresses don't/have never, corresponded to the classful system

You write "subnet between modem and router." <-- sounds like you've got your layers mixed up, but that you know better and could be more correct in your terminology

comment Exporting UTF-8 text from LibreOffice without byte order mark
@TedHopp Are you familiar with cygwin or gnuwin32? I did this in cygwin $ cat ass.txt | xxd -p | cut -b 7- | xxd -r -p >ass2.txt ass.txt has the BOM ass2 is the new file that does not. You could then make it a little script with parameters $1 or %1 depending on whether you do it in cmd or cygwin.

comment Exporting UTF-8 text from LibreOffice without byte order mark
@TedHopp ah , I thought what he wrote might not work 'cos yeah his answer said ASCII And your question said UTF-8.. so his "answer" would mess up non ascii characters.. now you've confirmed that, i've given him a -1. On a related note, If it were the case that libre office didn't have a way to strip the BOM from a file then would a command line solution that could work on a bunch of files be ok? And what OS is this? Windows? Linux?

comment Exporting UTF-8 text from LibreOffice without byte order mark
@TedHopp well, what if you choose the option he says? Run the "file" command on the file, and see what it says. You could try editing the hex of the UTF-8 file and removing the BOM. Did you try any of that?

comment How other applications that needs internet works, even my upnp disabled?
OK.. Though since your question isn't specific to your program, I suggest a simple way to create a server and connect to it. Run cygwin install nc, and run this command $ nc -l 1234 to make a server listen on port 1234. Then to connect to it, run $nc 127.0.0.1 1234 nc is like telnet.. but the command has an option -l to make it create a server. So it's very useful.. Anyhow.. I think I understand your question..

You are talking gibberish. e.g. a person does not connect "from A from B". They connect from A to B, or from B to A. And they should clearly define A and B. And what program is this? If this is a network question then you can ask it without talking about your program specifically. Just talk about programs that we all have on our computers so we can reproduce whatever you are talking about

comment Windows 7 search function does not work
give example of what the win7 search isn't finding.. but bear in mind, perhaps you shouldn't use windows 7 search for what you're using it for. I use it to find an icon in the start menu and that's about it. I've read one or two blog posts on how it's not very reliable. Try looking up windows 7 search is rubbish and alternatives to windows 7 search and you'll see people posting that and writing about that.

comment How other applications that needs internet works, even my upnp disabled?
Given the extent if your misunderstandings, you are going to have to elaborate much much more on what you think this/that is and why you think it would/wouldn't work. And you have 2 separate questions in your question, better to ask them individually. But ask your first one first, and get that understood, and elaborate a lot on the first question, in the areas that i've indicated. And consider a chat.

comment bash: Loop over lines of a file
you should state the scripting language e.g. bash in the title and in tag, if it's bash.. Note that sh isn't always bash stackoverflow.com/questions/5725296/… though i'd take a bit of a guess and say it is in your case.
