comment where are the integrated webcam drivers located in windows 7/8?
I would hazard a guess at C:\Windows\System32\drivers. Why are you asking?

comment How to determine what's trying to access my optical drive (emits unusual sounds)?
"Once in the Resource Monitor, go to the Disk tab, where you can see which processes are accessing your disks" - Isn't this just for hard-disks?

@Pacerier the restrictions are on the file system not on the OS.

comment Configuring a VPN to both act as a client and a server
hand out the IPs it gets from the VPN server -> That's not quite how I was imagining it; I had assumed the dd-rt router is a gateway to the remote VPN. It takes 1 IP from the remote VPN. All traffic sent from the LAN will appear to come from that single address from the remote VPN's perspective.

Of the external VPN? 1. He has the dd-rt router as the only client.

comment Configuring a VPN to both act as a client and a server
Hi JohnC, can you please clarify where the server part of this comes in? Do you have a 2nd router providing the VPN service on the network? Or is it a functionality of your first dd-wrt router? (Specifically, what do you mean by "using one of the preexisting VPN server capable wired routers"?)

comment Does a USB 3.0 connection require a USB 3.0 cord?
@CarstenSchultz "magically increase" is probably a bit unfair; it's not an unreasonable assumption that the same cable could carry more data due to a better protocol/communication standard. Such a phenomenon has occurred multiple times for the simple copper wire used in telecoms.

comment Windows cannot access my external harddisk partition not responding
Disk looks pretty dead. Some file recovery may be possible (search site for answers to that effect. I favour findntfs and findpart tools, but GUI tools available too). Consider using SMART tools to detect imminent disk failure. Remember to make backups of your data - especially on an external drive that presumably gets moved around. Good luck.
