comment How to find the IP of an embedded Linux device
If the device responds to broadcast pings. That's less anti-social.

comment Very slow wifi speed
Can you tell us a bit more about your network setup? Is there any other router in your network? What is the WR841N connected to? What Wifi hardware does the computer you are testing with have? What channel are you using? What kind of environment are you in (dense, sparse)? How far is the computer from the router?

comment Very slow wifi speed
@Crazy-Fool Can you be more specific about precisely how you are measuring the speed? You have to move data somehow in order to have something whose speed you can measure, right? If you just look at the speed of the data without specifically trying to move any data, you'll get the speed of nothing in particular.

comment Very slow wifi speed
How are you measuring the speed? And is the encryption AES, TKIP, or both?

Yes, just not this kind of scanning.

You can make it respond to any kind of broadcast you want, so long as you also make a tool to send that kind of broadcast and process the response.

comment How to find the IP of an embedded Linux device
That doesn't work very well if the network has a very large block of IP addresses, and it's considered antisocial on many networks.

comment Installing a 64 bit OS inside of a 32 bit OS
@Ramhound What about Windows Server 2008 for Itanium‌​? There are definitely x64 platforms that run Windows.

comment Adware plague in the apartment
Malwarebytes should be able to remove this particular piece of malware. If MBaM free finds and removes it, you should consider investing in the paid version to protect against it. But if the free version doesn't find it, likely the paid version wouldn't have protected against it.

comment Installing a 64 bit OS inside of a 32 bit OS
Is this an x64 platform or an x86_64 platform? If it's x64, what 32-bit OS do you have?! If it's x86_64, what hardware do you have that doesn't support a standard ACPI HAL?!

Are you sure you have the correct power adapter?

comment Only 3.3GB of RAM is used from 4.0 GB installed, how to use full memory?
This is, unfortunately, a limitation of the 945G chipset. It doesn't support memory remapping. For some reason, all the other comments and answers are focusing on the tiny amount of memory used by the integrated graphics, but that's peanuts compared to the amount you're losing due to all combined hardware mappings that must be placed below the 4G limit. Your chipset just can't remap the memory that's shadowed by these mappings, so that memory is lost.

comment Ethernet throttling itself? Wireless is fine. Video of issue included
I would suspect something horribly wrong with your Ethernet cable. Is it one you made or one you purchased?

comment Cannot route local traffic through local gateway
What precisely do you mean by "local traffic"? Do you mean traffic to 10.35.130.10? What makes that "local"?

How old is the battery?

comment Reason for TCP Slow Start in Subsequent Connections
@MaxRied Why do you say that? Strictly speaking, there's no guarantee two successive packets will ever take the same path, but networking engineers know that MTU detection is done and they try to keep paths "sticky" to keep performance reasonable.

comment Can someone explain intel(R) 82567V-4 gigabit network connection?
It's just the name of the device. It has no connection to what's available or even what the current speed is, though network devices are frequently named after their maximum line speed.

comment Why disk clone using dd takes more space then actual data size?
Cloning a disk clones the disk. Did you mean to copy the files?

comment Powerline Ethernet Adapters - can they be used like repeaters?
It will just make things even worse. You're better off getting higher-quality powerline adapters.

comment Corel Video Studio 7 will not run
Could you explain the problem. Why can't Corel Visual Studio Pro 7 run? What happens when you try?
