comment How to find a IP address of a Facebook profile?
The IP of the profile is just Facebook servers, the ip of the user logging into the profile is only known to Facebook, you'll have to call the company.

comment VGA to S-video/video converter won't work
Is it a cable or an actual converter box? S-video signaling (Chrom/Lum) is incompatible with VGA (RGB), however many videocards are capable of outputting SVideo as video out and some may multiplex a s-video output into the vga signal lines and provide a cable with the product, there is no standard for this and it is manufacturer specific .

Integrated graphics has a analog coding chip actually generating the physical signal too.

comment Intel Integrated Audio Signal Path
The Audio DSP is integrated, AC'97 is the last link to talk to a chip dealing with the analog circuitry, its basically an inteligent DAC on something better than I2C. It is also possible that the chipset integrates the DC97 and codec.

comment Intel Integrated Audio Signal Path
There is a dedicated audio bus on the motherboard and the controller lives on the chipset/southbridge , it is used both for audio output and modem interfaces. Audio chip is on this bus and the data is transfered in the AC'97 protocol, how the chip drives the analog circuitry depends on the device used.

some audio codec or DSP chip that drives a small output stage, probably integrated DAC.

comment how to SSH into a computer that's in a different WLAN?
No problem, you answer is more concise than what I started writing. The hard part is making sure that Router2 is not creating a VLAN but just acting as a switch, this may be a configuration option, but it will probably require that OP plugs the ISP router into the "LAN" switch of router2 and not the "WAN" port

Not true at all, you only need to change your router to either forward ports or share the same subnet. The "WAN" side of the personal router is on the same subnet as OP's PC1

Practically every Linux has rsync (backup) and cron (scheduling utilit) out of the box. Between those two you can get differential backups of files with any schedule. If you want more managed backups then you can use cron to call any utility you like. Rsync stores logs and diff files and there are many utilities that can display those for you in a nice gui

comment Troubleshooting advice for Yosemite macair2014 not booting past 50% loading bar?
Whoever wrote that guide for "security" needs to be banned posting advice online, what is wrong with just using kextutil to unload the drivers to avoid opportunistic snooping? If an attacker has root access to load the drivers back in then your systems are compromised anyway and they can easily copy those drivers back so your "security fix" is useless.

comment Can I access internet by connecting ethernet to a wifi repeater
Keep in mind if this router is currently configured as a repeater (range extender) it may not function as such if you configure it as a wifi-ethernet bridge.

comment Can I access internet by connecting ethernet to a wifi repeater
Most likely yes, the hardware should support it just fine. Practically every wifi controller that can be set to AP can easily be used in infrastructure mode, and setting the device up to forwarding is straightforward even in embedded OS's. The question is how much configuration control the manufacturer gives you to make it happen. I wouldn't know that without having one in front of me.

You removed system kexts, which are modules loaded into the kernel at boot time, you completely borked the system with your medling, Get an external dvd drive and reinstall from a dvd or image downloaded on another pc and call it a day. In the future it is much much safer and easier to rename/move system files than delete them if you find yourself in this position again. 9GB may not be enough space to download an unpack the image FYI

If you are trying to save data the only reliable way is to remove the HDD and back it up using another computer. Otherwise any mucking with the os, reinstalling, etc. is liable to make the data unrecoverable.

comment Can I access internet by connecting ethernet to a wifi repeater
Depends entirely on the repeater and how much networking hardware is on the repeater. The ethernet port on the repeaters Ive seen is just an access port for configuration. Most manufacturers will probably not include a switch in their basic repeaters in order to differentiate it as a product from their more expensive routers. However you can use many bona fide routers as a wifi-ethernet bridge easily.

comment Why does my microwave kill the Wi-Fi?
The radiaton interference is unlikely from the coherent standing wave microwaves in the oven getting out but the imperfect magnetron making the whole case act as a microwave antenna with low coherence (will cause noise but can't heat anything)

comment How to delete “System Volume Information” from an external drive when the feature isn't even turned on
None of those uses are particularly useful for a drive being used as a basic storage drive just because it happens to be NTFS.
