comment How can I change to the previous directory instead of going up?
@Randall, Perhaps you could combine all your individual shell comments into one Voltron-Shell answer.

comment How To Resolve IP Addresses To Domain Names?
For windows, I seem to remember using ping -a 192.168.0.1 and getting a name back. Can anyone on Windows see if that works for external IP's?

comment Netgear Router Static IP
DD-WRT used to have a very similar problem when you used the wrong browser. Have you tried it in IE or Firefox?

comment I forgot my wireless router password. What do I do?
@Pacerier, I should have said "ethernet patch cable"; CAT-5 is a common type.

comment pdf and djvu: Raster or vector graphic image
Sorry, not familiar with djvu, but from the wikipedia page, it sounds like a pdf alternative, so the same vector-style scaling should apply.

comment How can I keep the same IP address for one machine in my network?
@mcgrailm, BTW, the "MAC" Wil and I refer to is the Media Access Control address identifier for your network card(s), not your Macintosh.

@mcgrailm, your stock firmware doesn't support static leases, AFAIK. It can, however, be flashed with a custom firmware like DD-WRT which does have this feature.

comment How can I keep the same IP address for one machine in my network?
@mcgrailm, No, you reserve two static IP's for your 2 computers and the router will always give them those 2 IP's. Everything else that connects will behave normally and receive a dynamic IP. Not every Linksys router supports this; what is your model#? Also, the static assignment is actually per MAC address, not computer. So if you assign your wired NIC MAC to an IP, you'll have to create a separate entry for you wireless NIC MAC.

You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face.
