comment How can I reinstall Windows 7 if I lost my installation DVD?
@ScottChamberlain Just an FYI, I often consult this post when I need the ISOs; these links are dead now.

comment How is a router connected to a switch; is a patch panel needed?
Is the 3000 dollar estimate a guess? Because I'd rather get it done once and correct rather than buy all of the tools (which can be expensive for an occasional use unless you borrow, you'd need an RJ45 crimper, punchdown tool, and a tester if you want to make sure you've crimped everything correctly). You might see if you have any IT friends who would do it for some beer and a little assistance from you.

comment Cannot delete a file on a Windows USB flash drive on a Mac. Locked as “You can only read…” in the Finder
@Jake see cnet.com/news/… .. apparently writing is possible, but on a per-device basis.

comment Force refresh (re-scan) wireless networks from command line?
Does typing the command and pressing the up button + enter not work, or are you using it as part of a larger command?

I would just get a new router to start with, they're relatively cheap now.

comment After running Windows update all 20 lab computers are showing the same name
Is the name of all of the computers the same as the PC you're pulling the master image from? If so, a good hint

comment 40 Device Home and Home Office Network
No need for smart switches or VLANS. If your customer's files are important enough for that, you shouldn't be transferring them over email. Newer IP cameras love to hog bandwidth - think, the nicer ones are continually transferring HD movies over your network to a storage device (if you have one). A model number of our router would be helpful.

comment How can I tunnel from one computer on a Wi-Fi connection to another specific machine on the LAN?
If you want to game, it's probably best for a hardwired connection. I'm confused as to how the switch gets its internet.. it gets it from the Ubuntu 12.04 laptop's wireless interface, which then passes the internet out the ethernet interface to the switch? I know bridging adapters on Windows 7 is pretty straightforward to share internet connections, at least it was for me.

comment Why would RDP only work while pinging the machine?
So when you're pinging are you using the machine name or the IP?

comment Mysterious OS X File Extension (bug?)
The one it's using now is probably just a blank template that appends the extension of the file in the picture.

comment How often does the DNS cache clear?
What kind of things constitute a "networking change"? A new IP address, joining a different wifi network? or manually flushing the cache / setting DNS
