If you are not going to provide the requested info, Someone may as well close the question as I suspect my comments were valid ( corrupt App. infected system.. clean with combofix.exe may be most expedient solution.)

comment I'm on an Airplane right now at 30,000 ft, why is my “Current Location” pointing to an Airport?
WiFi wont reach you and the doppler and/or Fading noise might be intolerable if it did. Satellite is more logical reason. Good thing to know you can spoof your location in the air. ha ;p

I believe you have to open the ethernet masks to share beyond the Lnksys . Change masks from 255.255.255.0 to 255.255.0.0 which permits LANS from 192.168.0.x to 192.168.255.x to reach each other.

Thanks for your patience, muchos gracious, now I know filenames are UTF-16, RegEx is a little more understandable and Ruby isn't so scary if you get great advice from experts. Now where is that ice cream for my humble pie
