comment More than one ADSL WiFi Router with Modem on LAN
But that will only use the connection from the one with DHCP enabled. The clients won't route via the other ones.

comment What software can I use to co-ordinate a projector screen?
Given your using windows 7 try pressing 'Win' +P which if the drivers are set up correctly will give you the output options. Tap 'p' until 'extend' is selected, this will put you into dual head mode, in which the output screen shows something different to the internal one

comment VNC from Windows XP to Ubuntu host using SSH
Yup, exactly like that :), I'm guessing it still isn't working. You do have the VNC server setup on the remote machine and X running there?

comment VNC from Windows XP to Ubuntu host using SSH
Nope, I don't have anything to do with X11 forwarding enabled. I leave everything on the defaults apart from the single port forward. Whilst it is possible to run an X server on windows I have found VNC to be a better solution for remote access.

I use 'Local' instead of dynamic, 5900 as source port, and target-host:5900 as destination.

comment Can I upgrade an ADSL router firmware to DD-WRT or Tomato?
Agreed, also whenever I've looked in the past I've not actually found any ADSL routers that dd-wrt supports, as it doesn't have the adsl drivers in it, it's designed to work with cable routers

Can you not change the permissions on the remote folder so that your user has write access to it?
