comment When should the subjunctive be used after 'cuando'?
The question title does not match the question body. It is not clear which of both questions should be answered.

comment When to add prepositions before an infinitive verb (por/para/a/de)?
They never stated they were presenting a mixed list of prepositions and locuciones preposicionales. According to the article they were all prepositions.

Thanks. Apparently About.com just made up some prepositions themselves. However they seem just to be extensions of the originals in order to make them more similar to English ones.

comment When to add prepositions before an infinitive verb (por/para/a/de)?
The only valid sentence there is the first one (the one with para). There might be a use for the third one, if zapatillas de correr mas rapido actually referred to some specific make named correr mas rápido (as nike for instance). The others, just don't make sense at all. I 've read the links that you posted above, but still can't figure out your question. I think that you are trying to know if there is a general rule for the use of prepositions, but the use of prepositions has like so many cases; and I don't personally know any rules, sorry. It will depend on what you are trying to say.

Nacer por ejemplo. Uno puede nacer pero no nacerse.
