comment Why is ping time to two ip address location fairly close to each other so different?
@amitchaudhary Geographic proximity is only part of the equation. Routing path is the other part of the equation, so you have your answer. They are on different networks.

comment Error on warm reboot, not on cold boot
Do you have any USB storage devices plugged in? Try removing those if so. What stage does it hang?

comment Wake on Lan / WOL fails in Win10 when “Link Speed & Duplex” NIC set to anything other than “auto negotiation”, why?
Either the NIC on your laptop and the port it is plugged into are set to auto, or they are both set to a specific speed. What device are you plugging into?

comment Terminal does nothing when an unknown command is entered
Yeah, looks like your python3 is pointing to the python2 executable, and python2 is not configured for UTF, so is getting confused. Perhaps install python3?

Can you do python3 --version?

The data files may have become corrupted. I would uninstall/purge command-not-found and command-not-found-data and re-install. Check everything is gone from /usr/share/command-not-found before re-installing.

comment Terminal does nothing when an unknown command is entered
Actually, it is almost certainly an ubuntu derivative. With ubuntu, if you type in an unknown command asdf, it runs /usr/lib/command-not-found -- asdf. This checks for typos etc. Try running that command directly to see if you get better errors.

What distribution are you using?

comment grub2 not booting linux
Well, that is puzzling. Particularly as the boot line is using the dev rather than the uuid. I would try deleting the if [ block to see if the search thing is actually returning something wrong and overwriting the root with a bogus uuid.

comment grub2 not booting linux
There is an error in the grub config file, the UUID is the unique identifier of the partition that linuxfromscratch is in. Could you include the relevant portion of the grub.cfg in your question?

comment How do i compile module with different active kernel/kernel-after-reboot versions?
What distribution is it? You can compile a new version of the module, you just need to tell it to compile against the new kernel, and install into the new kernels /lib/modules. How you do this is a bit distro dependent.

No problem, though if you have identified the answer, please add it as an answer, and then accept it. That way it will help others.

comment WAN ports on GUI routers vs Cisco 890
Yeah, that is right - though normally they default to vlan1 out of the box. Can you paste the config somewhere?

comment WAN ports on GUI routers vs Cisco 890
I think the RV320 is just confusing the issue as there are two "WAN" ports. You had the ISP settings on one of the WAN ports, and the LAN settings on the LAN ports. Now you have a router where this distinction isn't necessary. Use fa0/0 as the WAN ports, then create a VLAN that contains all the other ports, and assign the LAN settings to the VLAN (this was done automatically on the RV320)

comment How to turn a current drive into a RAID array?
@ID-ZERO Is your entire 4TB drive in a single ext2 partition, and if so, how much space is used?

comment How to turn a current drive into a RAID array?
@Tetsujin Ideally, nothing is done without a backup, but if the OP had space enough that a backup was possible, I imagine this question would not need to be asked.
