I'd be replacing my keyboard - an old MS Wireless Desktop Elite, pretty crusty now:

I have an old Linksys WAG200G, it's getting old now, really needs replacing, and I'd love something with two USB ports too.

I really need the Rapoo E8090 wireless keyboard.

I work for a large district health board educating patients about their chronic kidney disease. I go out to their houses to speak to them and their Whanau. At present I am using my own Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to show them photographs of dialysis etc and powerpoints to aid their retention of the information. The big problem that I have is my fingers are quite chubby so having an actual wireless keyboard would aid me in writing new educational material whilst at work.

I photo is one I took in the work toilet!

I am going to replace my Telecom supplied Thompson Wireless ADSL modem router.

It just doesnt work for me as well as I would like. For a start it is too slow.

Logging into its CLI to add devices mac addresses feels easier, but then it keeps losing it randomly regardless of being saved.

But the most important reason I am replacing it is because it is not connected to the phone line to get broadband. As confusing as this may sound, I am using it as a wireless router because I am cheap. I have a dedicated ADSL2+ modem connected to it because my dedicated modem is much more reliable and quicker on the ADSL connection.

So with this Linksys router, i'll finally have a proper fast wireless connection to pair up with my modem thus finally removing the weakest link in my network.

 

CIAO :)

Wireless

I would like to replace my SMC wireless router as even though I have located in the centre of my house the reception in my room is not all that good as the house has concrete walls. Need a better quality one with more grunt to help me out.

Thanks :-)

The router would be a great to replace both my really old Belkin ADSL router and my cheap but cheerful TPLink Wireless Access Point.

I just shifted and am currently using a faulty Belkin G wifi modem/router that perpetually disconnects but after a firmware update plus setting changes can now last for 24hrs but needs powered off and on every day in-order to operate.

Would like to extend my wifi by taking the duty off my Vodafone HG566a and the keyboard would make a pretty nice replacement for my MS Keyboard with Fingerprint Reader...that has no Windows 7 x64 drivers....

bradstewart: Linksys EA6500

It would replace my current TP Link one. The LAN has crapped out on it and I am currently using my USB tethered phone so my desktop can connect to it via WiFi but thanks to the location of my broadband jack the signal is so low I have to hold my phone up in the air to get a somewhat stable connection.


Same here.
I would like the Linksys wireless router, if it can be bridged to my other router.
EDIT: Also my Lexma(?) Keyboard that still plugs in with PS/2

So here is my ailing modem/router ... as strong as a sunbathing Troll. As long as I am within the same distance as a dwarf is high, then reception is all good. To help us connect around the Hobbit hole I have breathed some Smaug power into transmission with the help of a couple of boosters. Oh, and carefully balanced the device at the top of the hole hoping that it will not topple and take an unexpected journey back to middle earth. Result = Meh. So, I would want to replace this with a precious Linksys EA6500. And then connection should be Be orn belief. Well, hopefully?

Well, it would be nice to have a wireless setup again. I don't have one at the moment as the last wireless I had was a Thompson ADSL modem and I am on satellite now so it became redundant. As for the keyboard, I usually just use any old wired thing lying around from the detritus of unrepairable computers. A wireless setup would be fabulous!
