comment Cant edit excel file in Sharepoint because it has Comments, Shapes, or other objects
Does your Sharepoint have version history enabled? You could use that to try to find the point where it stopped being browser-editable and see what the preceeding change was maybe?

That is weird. I've updated my answer to show how it looks when it does find shapes and comments. I guess you have some mystery other object(s) that are not detected.

comment Can modern switches act like hubs?
port mirroring will not give you everything. For example, hardware and media errors will not be mirrored (and that might be what you are looking for). Also, mirroring is low priority and a busy switch will drop packets.

If you're looking to purchase hardware, you should look at a network tap instead.

comment How does Nmap decide which DNS servers to use?
Not sure, but it might be getting closer. In that Registry location I have 11 interfaces listed, but "NameServer" is blank for all. There is another key "DhcpNameServer" which is populated though. Nmap is using 4 DNS servers, two of which match the two configured for my current connection. One of the others that Nmap is using is in the "DhcpNameServer" key for an interface used by a disconnected VPN. The fourth DNS server is not listed anywhere.

@bonsaiviking The original command combined with --dns-servers 192.168.x.11,192.168.X.12 consistently returns in 3-4 seconds. I believe you have found the answer - my DNS settings are screwed. If you post it as an answer I will accept it. Thank you!

@bonsaiviking scratch that. I needed an extra . at the end of that command

@bonsaiviking, thank you for your help. I think you might be onto something. If I understand what should be happening, I got a very odd result to that nslookup, which I've edited into the end of the question.
