comment “Network path was not found” when trying to access a file share
@Kyle - The server it's connecting to is the only one with shares on the network. And, if it can't connect to \\servername\ or \\IPAddress\, it's not going to be able to get any further in the file share structure.

@Kyle - I'll make sure to check that, the next time I look at the problem. But, I'm pretty sure it is.

comment Why can I ping google.com, but not nasa.gov?
@Robert - An ARP request won't effect the statistics gathered by the PING command. Those are two totally different, unrelated, and un-connected functions.

comment Is there a way to determine how much memory each Firefox add-on is leaking?
I think there's a way to do this with Process Explorer, but I haven't done it myself.

Adding note from @ChrisS in chat: "Replace the where functions with {$_LastWriteTime.Year -eq Get-Date.Year -and $_LastWriteTime.Month -eq 6} for June of the current year."

@MatrixMole - Thanks. PowerShell's syntax is definitely something I've got to learn to get used to.

comment List sub-folders at a certain level, with modified dates
I've figured out I need to add Where {$_.psIsContainer -eq $true} to the command string somewhere. Question now is, do I just add it to the pipeline, or is there a way I should include the new condition in the existing where statement?

Ack! I'm missing one more step (will add to OP also) - need to retrieve directories only. Thanks again, for the great help!

comment List sub-folders at a certain level, with modified dates
Okay, I've run the command on my target, and the output is a bit too verbose to be immediately useful. Is there any way to pare that down a bit, so that there's only one line per item found? Also (or alternatively) can I get PowerShell to just give me a total of the search results?

Wow. I've got a lot of PowerShell learning to do. Though most of it seems fairly logical, do you mind breaking it down a bit more? Also, a copy of the output would be cool to have here, too.

comment Leaving your WiFi public?
@nealmcb - The OP doesn't clarify the nature of the network, but it does seem to be a home network. Still, the topic of free public wifi networks such as coffee shop or community-shared networks is covered here: security.stackexchange.com/questions/2214/… Also, I think "Hole 196" and others still apply to even WPA2 networks that have per-user authenticators. It really seems this thread would be better served at Security.SE.

comment Leaving your WiFi public?
To be more clear, RE: @nealmcb's comment, using WPA2 will protect you against outside threats. But, if someone is given access to your Wi-Fi network, they can still capture your wireless traffic.
