Setting up my home server with the NVG510 router on AT&T Uverse

My Rant

I got a new router as AT&T forced me to a new product called U-Verse. They are actually forcing all their users to switch to that new systems as the new optic cables are now installed and they probably have a goal to turn off their old infrastructure soon.

The old router I had would generate a gateway on their side. The router was just a router ...

Installing a Nook on my Static IP Network

Barnes and Noble Nook (Electronic device to read books anywhere!)Introduction

Today I was requested by my wife to make her Nook work on our wireless network (she usually can use our neighbors but the connection drops all the time.)

The Nook makes use of DHCP only. So on my static IP address only network, it's kinda not going to work as is! (I must have static IP addresses for security so I can setup a strong firewall.)

So I had to go through a few hoops as follow to get everything to work. Interestingly enough I have not found another website that was talking about such things and their solutions on Linux.

Oh! Wait! Nookers are probably not Linux ...

QEMU networking problems when trying to get it to connect with the host (bridging not working)

Virtual Box Bridging

I have a computer with Ubuntu 11.04 (the host) on which I installed a version of Ubuntu 11.10 (the guest) using QEMU. Both are 64bit on an i5 quad.

What I'm trying to do is allow the host to access the guest via a br0 bridge and possibly using all static addresses so they don't change on me (there still seem to be some DHCP going on the guest side and maybe that's part of the problem.)

When I start qemu with nic/user, it works as expected (well... somehow the nameserver 10.0.2.3 fails now... since I installed my br0 bridge, but I can fix the ...

Where are the network connections on Windows 7?! (for static IP addresses)

I don't know about you, but on my end I like to use static IP addresses on my Intranet.

But under Windows Vista and Windows 7, Microsoft have done an incredibly good job at hiding the network connections to make sure you don't temper with them.

The path is as follow:

        Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections

Once you are in there, you can use the right mouse button to get to the usual MS-Windows settings (The one where you can click on IPv6 or IPv4 and setup the IP to static.)
