comment Create Dependency Of Scheduled Task On One Another (Windows Task Schedular)
Having done a bit of research, it seems very dependant on what service pack / version of powershell etc. Also I would need to know if these servers are 2008 or 2008 R2 (one's vista core and one's windows 7 core). I found this article that will be helpful in building a script, whether it's batch or powershell: windowsitpro.com/scripting/rem-using-wmi-manage-scheduled-tasks

I know this won't help very much, but this would be oh-so-very-much-easier in bash than batch file. You might want to try a powershell script, but I'm not as competent with it as I am with bash.

I don't think task schedule can directly have dependencies, but whatever scripts your running could include something along these lines at the beginning: schtasks /query /TN \Microsoft\Windows\Wininet\CacheTask Where "/TN" is the task name and the line following is the location of the task. This will tell you if something's running, if you can parse the output in a script and then have the script wait until "status" changes from "Running" to "Ready" then you could go from there.

What OS are you using? For instance, server 2008 and above have a vastly improved task scheduler to 2003, if I know what OS you're running I may be able to be of more help.

comment Using Win7 PC for routing
Windows 7 has very basic routing capabilities, that seem to be extendable with the above option "Virtual Router", however I really wouldn't rely on this. I think your best option would just be a cheap 5 port gigabit switch and a cheap wireless g/n access point plugged in to the switch, then you wouldn't have to worry. I'm sure the energy bill from leaving your pc on all day long will be less than the cost of a switch and an access point.

You could always try switching to zsh, universal history in every terminal.

comment Using Win7 PC for routing
How many internal subnets do you need? Does this computer really need to be windows 7, could it be something like pfsense or vyos? Is this computer's sole purpose a router or as a desktop computer too? If you are never going to use it interactively (keyboard and monitor) and want windows 7 for file sharing and routing only, I would recommend installing something like esxi, then have a windows VM for file sharing and a dedicated router vm like pfsense for routing (or vyos for routing and wifi, though it's more complex to set up).

comment Strange IP addresses given from router.(ISP limits number of addresses?)
What you might find, too, is that your router will not be able to get a DHCP lease, due to the fact all your IPs have been allocated. To fix this, BEFORE you follow this guide, on your windows wireless computer run "ipconfig /release" in an elevated command prompt (type cmd in the search menu on the start bar, right click on cmd and click run as administrator). This will then release the IP address so your router can take it once reconfigured. If you do not do this you will probably find you will have to reboot the modem or wait between 8 and 72 hours for the lease to be released.

comment Strange IP addresses given from router.(ISP limits number of addresses?)
This is because, currently, you are being assigned public IP addresses. Your ISP (very generously) seems to allow you several public IP addresses (there are only 4 billion in the world and they are rapidly running out). When set to router mode, your router hands out the IP rather than the ISP doing so. It hands out a private IP (it does not matter if a private IP has a duplicate elsewhere in the world) rather than a public IP (only one of each address can exist in the world). Your router will have enough addresses to hand out to 254 devices, instead of your ISP's 5.
