comment Windows UAC cannot write to Program Files
Great answer, but "I don't want a shortcut or to enable 'Run as Administrator' from the editor's executable file.". In my opinion it is the best solution though.

comment Windows UAC cannot write to Program Files
Generally you try not to write to the Program Files folders. I consider them a "one off". Once installed they generally modify files within app data. Knowing what context this is in would be helpful though.

Great to hear. I've been searching for a similar tool for Windows to no avail, that is my solution for now. I assumed that a network admin would have created a tool, but perhaps not.

comment Connecting router (SMCWBR14S-3N) to modem (SB6121)
I am referring to the routers. You need to add all of the connection credentials so it can communicate with your ISP. That is unless your modem automatically does this and is simply forwarding the connection. It could be the reason that you can't disable DHCP. You have it going now so that is all that really matters. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"

You are correct that normally it would be the other way around. Not sure why this might be.

Also, the router won't be able to work with the modem unless you have setup the connection credentials under the setup tab.

Right, so you need to find the setting to disable DHCP on the modem and enable it on the router. Make sure the router and the modem have two different ip addresses and are on the same subnet ie ( 192.168.1.xxx)

I'm a little bit confused as to what you are trying to achieve. Why don't you get the router to be the DHCP server instead of the modem? Simply use the modem as a gateway to the internet, but let the router handle the load. Is the modem being plugged into the router via wan? Is it lan cable to wan port? Please explain your setup. Sorry if I have simply misunderstood.

comment How to bypass Lenovo Thinkpad power-on password?
Can you get into the BIOS? If so login and you should be able to change the password there. I may be wrong, but sometimes you can change the boot password from the BIOS. Is the Hard Drive encrypted?

Possibly unrelated, but I use Fing on my iPod Touch. I just leave it beside my PC. itunes.apple.com/en/app/fing-network-scanner/id430921107?mt=8

comment Why can I not get all wireless clients to connect to my DIR-655 router?
This is what I am currently experiencing also. Another way to test if DHCP isn't allocating properly or enough is to assign a static IP to a device, then see if it can connect to the internet. If it can then you need to look into your DHCP setup.
