comment Router Passthrough WAN to LAN
Not clear what you are trying to do. If you want two radios working over Ethernet you need two converters plugged into one router, not two routers.

comment Switch behind router or router behind switch
The IP/default gateway for the switch is for the management interface/functions only. The switch's default gateway should be your router's IP.

Sounds like you're doing everything right and they gave you incorrect information.

comment Loading Disk image to Ram for boot purposes
It's possible because Windows PE does exactly that. BartPE was the same done with XP. Not sure how to convert an existing Windows install to run from a RAM disk, though.

comment Is HDD RAW or NTFS?
RAW means it can't tell what the filesystem is, and if I/O errors occurred while it was trying to determine the type of filesystem, then you might also see RAW. You should back up data immediately while you have some chance of getting the data.

comment Why are pixels square?
I've never manufactured a monitor in my life so my conjecture about the cost could be way off. I would just imagine it's cheaper to lay out in a grid than the staggered pattern a hexagon would require. Drawing straight lines with hexagons would have fringing basically on all directions (horizontal, vertical, diagonal) - it's basically three rhombuses put together.

comment How would I encrypt my whole Linux filesystem with Veracrypt?
You can't change a volume from unencrypted to encrypted while it is mounted/you are using it like TrueCrypt does for Windows system volumes. LUKS volumes can only start off encrypted in the first place.

LUKS encrypts/decrypts in realtime. It takes a partition like /dev/sda1 and creates an "encrypted version" /dev/mapper/something. You (or a script) mount/use the /dev/mapper device, anything read/written is de/encrypted automatically.
