re: Had to buy new modem. Now wifi strength on nighthawk took a major dive. - TAMU-93
There's an app called WiFiman that lets you test the speed between two devices on your WLAN. This is a WiFi speed test, not an Internet speed. The modem is completely eliminated from the equation. Install and run the app on two devices. You'll get a popup asking if you want to run a speed test...

re: Paint for crib / nursery furniture - TAMU-93
You can paint over lacquer, but not lacquer over paint. Lacquer uses solvents that may damage your paint. I'd use an acrylic paint and primer like Behr Premium Plus. You can dilute that paint with water to work with your HVLP sprayer. Then topcoat with a high gloss water based poly like Varath...
