comment optimal way to produce good or better hardcopies with a scanner and inkjet printer?
If your scanner is very old you may actually get better quality by taking a digital photo of the document if you have a recent digital camera or smartphone.

In the past when I've used them they've appeared as a dialup modem with the detailed settings varying based on what phone network you're connecting to.

Sounds like it's reading the hidden system partition that win 7 automatically creates automatically as your C: drive for some reason.

comment Mulitple ISP IP's pointing to one router
It's not an unusual situation in a business environment although I've usually had a small group of static IPs rather than a mix. If you only have one LAN socket on the router you just plug in a switch and connect multiple devices to that.

It's certainly not a common issue. I've dealt with dozens of sets of speakers without seeing it.

comment My laptop connect to wireless router but wont connect to internet
Glad to help, as far as books go, I don't really know most of what I've picked up is just experience over 20 years of user support. w3schools.com have basic courses that cover a broad base including basic tcp/ip which is what we were looking at.

I'm not sure where it might be in the dell bios, I've never owned a dell but your usually looking for a section called device options or device configuration.

comment Are there linux distros for switches?
Yup, I think they just have some preprogrammed rules in an integrated circuit rather than anything programmable

For some reason you haven't got a default gateway, it's possible you've set a manual ip address on your wireless card. Do you know how to change the properties of your wireless lan card?

comment Windows touchpad damaged
That would make me think it's either disabled in the bios or broken. Hopefully it's just disabled.
