comment no route to host: Is this associated with SSH or system network configuration?
Have you set up an equivalent rule on the computer you're trying to ssh to? Also, try "ping -R" to show you the route the ping packets are taking...

comment Why does SSH hang at the end of these commands and how can I make it exit?
Does it work if you replace the contents of the <<EOI block with something like "echo 1"?

comment Can I hide BIND mount points from DF?
"df --exclude-type=none" will do it, although that might hide other things too. On my ubuntu system, df already seems to ignore bind mounts, and I have to run "df --all" to see them.

comment Convert PDF to JPG via GhostScript
If you have access to something like pdftoppm then that'll let you convert any page(s) of a pdf into a ppm image of your chosen resolution. Then you can use ppmtojpeg to convert it to a jpg.

comment Word document lost without a trace
Might be worth doing find / -name "STARolicySTAR" which would find similarly named files, e.g. if the extension has been changed somehow. Change STAR to an asterix character in that - I can't seem to make it show up here!

comment what is dns hijacking?
Well - according to Wikipedia ;) it's this: "DNS hijacking or DNS redirection is the practice of subverting the resolution of Domain Name System (DNS) queries. This can be achieved by malware that overrides a computer's TCP/IP configuration to point at a rogue DNS server under the control of an attacker, or through modifying the behaviour of a trusted DNS server so that it does not comply with internet standards."

comment Why doesn't Ubuntu show my wireless device after updating the kernel?
Have a look in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf (and similar files) to see why b43 is blacklisted - AFAIK it's the latest broadcom driver. Also you might like to run jockey and see if it suggests any better drivers for your wireless card.

comment Two routers in a LAN
Router B probably won't assign an IP address to itself that has just been configured on router A - I.e. you'll have to assign it manually on router B. But you should be able to set it up as per your diagram.

comment Recover ADSL password for my Linksys WAG54G2
Routers often have something like a "backup configuration" option that gives you a text file of the settings. Is there one of those on your router?
