    Lenovo Y480 laptop constantly losing WiFi connection

    I would check the wifi card physically. It won't void your warranty. There should be a panel on the underside you can take off to get to the card. Make sure its seated well in the slot and the antenna cords are hooked on real good.

    BSOD on Dell Optiplex 745 Windows 7 install

    I used to have these in my office till we tossed them in the dump. 3 out of 5 units had blown capacitors on the motherboard. I'd also swap memory sticks. Lastly, try installing Windows 7 via USB stick instead of DVD.

    Backup suite with centralized management and VSS?

    Crashplan PRO Enterprise. You'd install the PROe Server then install the clients. Here is the catch -- no VMM backup support for now (they are working on it). It doesn't do image based backups, only files. Consider it because its easy, affordable and very scale-able.

    Internet failover option - Dual WAN router

    I've been having great success with Cradlepoint routers. Look up the MBR1200 and MBR1400 models. I really like how smooth the failover is. When a connection goes down it switches within 3-5 seconds. Lots of options, VPN support and has a great GUI.

    Hey guys please help me with this stupid router problem

    Ah ok, so look for an option that lets you enable Keep Alive. Usually you'll have 2 options with PPPoE, On Demand and Keep Alive. Choose keep alive and see if that keeps the disconnects from happening.

    Can a person who hack your PC, hack into your phone?

    Possible? Maybe? But not likely happening to your friend in this situation. If he is concerned that his phone has been compromised by some kind of software or malicious app than delete it or factory reset the phone. Can you go into more detail about how his PC was hacked?
