    babadoctor reacted to Windows7ge in ubuntu mount wont work   
    I've edited fstab quite a few times with no issues. I can't say how well it plays will unpluggable devices though (should you unplug it and plug it back in will it remount? I can't say.)

    Good luck running that on windows. Network tools from cli is no way or form obsolete, take a look at command line only Linux distros... Tcpdump, nmap, load more tools you'd run in cli.

    Since 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.255.255 is close to a CIDR /16 Block, a /16 could be specified instead of /24. For example:
    nmap 192.168.0.0/16 would match 192.168.0.0 to 192.168.255.255. Do note, that this will match the 192.168.0.0/24 range, which may be undesirable.
     
    You can also specify ranges to nmap using a hyphenated notation, like so:
    nmap 192.168.1-255.1-255 This method will give you better control over what ranges are scanned.

    @babadoctorHi  there. Sometimes ubuntu forgets to ask the router to be assigned an ip. To resolve this first make sure that you have root (sudo) level permissions. Then follow this guide:

    That's a good question and I do not know.  Ideally you'd use conduit so you can replace it if it fails, but I wouldn't be surprised if they are stapled.  Only way to know is to try.

    That's a good question.  No you can't daisy chain, so it seems those two are directly wired to each other.  Its going to take some investigation by yourself to figure out what those two cables are, if they aren't connected to those sockets.

    It could be they just disconnected them at the back of the sockets and ran another cable directly between the two?

    Yes That's actually better then the one I was recommending.  Gonna save that one to the Amazon wishlist of recommendations.
    So Cat5e is 1,000mbps, but if you only use two pairs (4 wires) of the 8 inside a cat5e cable, you get cat5 speeds, which is 100mbps. My guess is there's 2 or 4 wires from that cable that is not connected to the jack on the wall.

    Yeah, you'll need a punchdown block, or get a keystone patch panel and use keystone couplers.It seems you have the cables ran, but they aren't terminated at all.
     
    You'll also need a router and a network switch to plug all the ports into.

    You have to convert the bare wire (the blue wires in your house) into a connector the PC can use for internet (RJ45). You use punchdowns to do this. Wire is punched into terminals on a punchdown block or keystone, and turns it into a RJ45 port (shown above).

    The other alternative method is to terminate male RJ45 jacks on the end of the bare cable and use keystone couplers. More labor intensive, but the connection is stronger (At least my luck with punchdowns even with a tool hasn't been the greatest).
     

     
    All of these ends would be connected using patch cables to a switch, which then connects to a router, and finally connects to your modem.

    If it were me Id get a patch panel. 
     
    You cant just connect all the cables together. In order to do this you need a switch. What most people do is either install rj45 jacks on the wires and connect those directly to the switch or they buy a patch panel and connect the wires to that. A patch panel will basically have a bunch of Ethernet ports on one said and a place to wire these wires up on the other. You would connect an Ethernet cable from the patch panel to a switch and that will get communication going. 
     
    Well if you want to share internet they you need to have a connection from your gateway (Modem/Router) going to the place where all your wires are, because thats the only way your going to get internet through out the house.

    Basically, if all those cables are hooked up to a Switch you can simply connect your router to one of the existing sockets (assuming there is one in that location) and it will then go via the central Switch to every ethernet port.  Although people usually prefer to have the router in the same central location as the switch, its not essential.

    Okay. I'm gonna throw a lot of information at you. Ask as many questions as you need.
    So an ethernet punchdown block looks like the first image below. 
    What these do is take the bare wires inside of the cat5e cable and pair them so they will work with a regular patch cable. 
    NOTE: You will probably two labels on them, one that will say T568A, and one for T568B. USE T568B. T568A is an old standard.
    After this, you will need a switch. to connect all of your patch cables to your modem. These can be as cheap as $20 if you only need 5 ports, but get more expensive depending on how many ports you need. 
    You can also use individual connectors for each cable. Those are called keystone connectors. (second image.) You can see the different labeling for T568A and B on the side of this connector as row "A" and row "B" Long story short, line up the 8 small wires with the correct color coding (Blue, White with Blue stripe, Orange, White with Orange stripe, etc) to the "B" layout and you should be good to go.
     
    Please feel free to ask any more questions as you get them. Also if you live in the US, I know for sure there are phone service technicians that also do cat5e networking and could do this for you if you are willing to pay someone and don't want the headache. I'm assuming other countries have the same technicians available.

    You might be able to get the contents of the web request into something like a Google calendar event and then tell the Home to read the calendar event, but that's clunky and awful.

    Couldn't you just set the depth to 1?
     
    -l 1 (That's an L)
     
    From the wget man.
     
    -l depth --level=depth Specify recursion maximum depth level depth. The default maximum depth is 5.   or maybe   -D domain-list --domains=domain-list Set domains to be followed. domain-list is a comma-separated list of domains. Note that it does notturn on -H.   or maybe  -L --relative Follow relative links only. Useful for retrieving a specific home page without any distractions, not even those from the same hosts.

    (I am really not an expert on bash but couldn't you use a regex to create those restrictions pretty easily?'
     
    Idk if you want that flag set: '-H,  --span-hosts    go to foreign hosts when recursive'
    Also that flag might be a good idea: '-L,  --relative       follow relative links only'
    That might be an issue too since it might use foreign links to display pictures: ' -p,  --page-requisites    get all images, etc. needed to display HTML page'
     
    And dude 'wget -h' or --help is a godsend and mostly the way to go when something not really nice happens
    But you probably knew that.

    the repeater we have is a Wilson, it has no monthly fee, it does NOT use the internet, which is specifically what the OP said he didn't want, those ones supplied by the network provider cost an arm and a leg and then have insane monthly fees tacked on, this Wilson is a multi-network capable repeater, like those ones you say are "illegal" but we are out in the country and it barely gives any level of service inside the building and the neighboring houses are far enough away there is no chance it can cause any kind of interference, it's like an older version of this unit https://www.wilsonamplifiers.com/weboost-home-3g-cell-phone-signal-booster-kit-473105/
