My wireless router's DNS server is always kinda borked for some reason. Google's DNS works great. However, when I connect from campus, Google DNS doesn't work, but the campus DNS servers are fine with me. Is there any way I can tell my Windows 7 computer with one wireless adapter to use different settings for this depending on what wireless network I'm on? (The home DNS does return results, it just periodically starts thinking that Google is Yahoo, Sourceforge is Bing, other such weirdness.)

Why is my wireless router WZR-HP-G300NH not mounting my USB External HD? I'm trying to access my Western Digital My Passport SE external hard drive through the wifi connection on the router.

I'll be using my MacBook to access the files and would like to stream my movies wirelessly from the external HD. [more inside]

I have a Linksys WCG200 cable modem/wireless router combo device. It sucks at wireless (and extensive Googling has indicated that's unfixable), but it's OK at everything else. Can I pick up a $30 wireless router, plug that into the device I have now, and use that without any loss of quality? Would I need any other devices? Would it just be easier to get a new stand-alone cable modem as well?

iPad 3G cellular vs. wi-fi -- which takes precedence if both are active? If I have 3G cellular turned on, while sitting at home with my home wireless, does it use the faster home wireless? Or does the 3G just clobber everything and gleefully rack up data charges? I've been turning it on and off as needed, but that's just annoying, so I'd like to get the question settled once and for all.
