I have a pc without a wireless card with ubuntu 14.04 installed. It is hardwired to the modem
I want to add a laptop over the wireless portion of the modem. The modem is capable of handling wifi
Is it possible to have a hardwired desktop and wireless laptop on the same modem

It's a maybe. Without the model numbers of the network gear I can't check out the wifi capable modem's features. It should be OK but my answer has to remain "maybe."

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
