comment How can I avoid daily reboots of my wireless router?
@Ramhound It's not the modem that's rebooting. I have to physically reboot my router, due to a lose of internet connectivity.

@MDMoore313 Using a virtual machine while connecting a devices via USB, does not give me the warm an fuzzies.

It doesn't boot. Hence the use of the term "bricked"

@ckhan If that's the case, is it possible to recover or rewrite the boot sector?

Will I have to purchase a copy of Windows 7 (i.e. a few hundred bucks)?

This sounds more advanced than simply encrypting data. The computer won't even recognize the drive is attached.

@MDMoore313 And risk spreading the virus?

Yes. I've done that, and actually said exactly that in the question.

comment How can I add a wireless router to a wired router?
Thanks for the answer, but it doesn't really help. I can't get the wireless router to connect to the wired router properly, so messing with firewall settings is the least of my problems at this point.

comment Chrome tabs not responding and not showing in task manager
Network does not matter. Home page is set to Google.com. When working correctly the new tab does show in the task manager and the omni bar works fine, the new tab only fails to show up when the problem is encountered.

comment Issue Connecting two home networks
@Kyle - You're right about over complicating the situation, I am just pointing out one way to do it using 2 routers. Personally I would have one router near the switch coming in and then switches after that. If the OP could put his router before the 8 port switch, life would be nice and simple.

comment Issue Connecting two home networks
You'll want to set up subnets then, and allow traffic from 192.168.0 into 192.168.1 and vise versa.

comment Issue Connecting two home networks
Why are you using two routers? Why not just use a switch to extend the network (since you are basically using router 2 as a switch anyway)? If you actually want to set up two networks you'll want to use subnets, so for example network 1 will be 192.168.0 and network 2 will be 192.168.1, then you will have to setup routing tables to route between the subnets.

comment Chrome tabs not responding and not showing in task manager
I have seen this behavior on many versions, on different PCs, and with/without extensions running. And yes the current tab still works.

comment Are routers and switches the same?
@MaQleod: Do you really have to know anything about the OSI model to know that a router and a switch are different? It's not like I asked for a detailed analysis of each device and how they function.
