comment One way high ping when directly connecting two devices
Try without a crossover, also, because most (or all) modern NICs are MDI-X capable, eliminating the need for a crossover cable.

You made your own cable? Why?

comment I can't get a second router to extend my network over powerline adapters
I've abandoned Powerline at home numerous times, because it's very dependent on pretty perfect cabling between the adapters. Something that's very difficult in both modern (because of inductive breakers) and old houses (because of old wiring). ISTR that american houses are wired fundamentally differently, but IANAElectrician.

comment I can't get a second router to extend my network over powerline adapters
Since you've said "loft" I'm going to assume you're british. Are these two Powerline devices on different ring-mains? Which would mean there's circuit breakers between them? .. I've seen circuit breakers interfering with Powerline hardware, as they work by having some inductors on the line, which can cause untold mischief with the frequency that Powerline adaptors operate at.

What kind of budget do you have?

comment Planning home network
I'd ditch the ATA route, as if you're looking for a router with "VoIP built in" then you're limiting your choices. Just grab a Linksys SPA 948 off ebay, and move to real voip.

comment Wi-fi signal with keeping the internet cable
I install wireless systems for a living. I don't want to go anywhere near this question until it gets revised a bit.

comment What USB NAS adapter allows one to mount its attached hard drive and access it locally and remotely via the internet?
I'd quite like to find one of these too. Business case: We have a tape drive that only seems to be happy saving logfiles to a USB stick. I'd like a thing that could pretend to be a USB mass storage device, but also present a filesystem over IP.

comment How can I capture packets going from my router to a specific server?
You might be able to fill the mac address table on the D-link router so that it becomes a hub, and mindlessly broadcasts all the crap out onto every port.

Well, make sure it's plugged in, and earthed when you hoover?

comment Linux RHEL-W 6.1 laptop slows suddenly with fan running hard
I dunno. Every laptop I've ever had that overheated was effectively cured with a hoover and a can of air.

Perhaps you need to hoover the fluff out of the cpu fan/cooler.
