    New Router

    I liked the Linksys E3000, but its about $90-130. It has a USB port and while I didn't try a HDD in it I was able to turn it into a print server. Only reason why I don't use it anymore is because I wanted a Apple Time Capsule so I could use Time Machine to back up my MacBook.

    as far as I know if you put the guest network in a different virtual network they can't access the other virtual networks.

    New Router

    Well I used to use a Linksys WAP54G which is just an access point then later upgraded to a Linksys E3000 router and I put DDWRT on it. I was able to do virtual wireless networks on both but I never went into it too much. Now I use an Apple Time Capsule. Flashing would remove the feature...

    New Router

    Personally I would do this: Modem>Switch>New Router for you >Old Router for him I know with ddwrt you can create virtual wireless networks, surely you can do this with tomato? If a router has a guest network flashing tomato on it would remove this feature.

    Port Forwarding Help

    No, DHCP reservations are for your internal IPs only. It just makes sure they always get the same 192.168.x.x address. You forward it like you would any other port, to the internal IP address that runs the service you want external access to. Then you didn't setup DynDNS properly. It's a...

    New computer BSOD

    That option is in the BIOS, not in Windows. If you install Windows when AHCI was selected and it gets changed to IDE mode then Windows will fail to boot and vica versa. It has to do with SATA mode. AHCI is a better mode and yes a reinstall would fix it if that is the problem however changing...

    Streaming Video Connection

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the TV doesn't have to support WiDi since you need a receiver box. Your PC would have to support WiDi tho.

    Virtual Drive Software

    I use Slysoft's Virtual CloneDrive on my Windows machines. It's free and it emulates a BD-ROM, it also includes mount/unmount options on the right click context menus.

    Has anyone gotten OSX Lion yet?

    I believe you have to be on snow leopard to upgrade. So you have to upgrade to Snow Leopard first then upgrade to Lion. I was able to upgrade from SL to Lion without loosing anything.

    How to charge a stranger.

    This is the same problem I face when I fix someone's computer. Also, if he isn't going to pay for the Win7 upgrade and wants to use other means of getting it I wouldn't do it.
