I could surely do with a new router as my elderly D-Link is not really fast enough to stream 3D movies to my Wi-Fi TV.
I have added a signal booster (Coke can)(see photo) which does improve the signal.  It's true; it does improve the signal strength. Smile
The Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router would fit the bill perfectly.

Also, the wireless keyboard is something I have wanted to control Windows desktop on my big TV. Perfect.

I'm still rocking this old thing from Microsoft and could really do with something wireless for my home theatre. Any improvement on my old WAG325N would be great.

May the farce be with you!

I'm aiming for the Router to replace an old Dynalink RTA1320. Why? Well - I don't have wireless at all and it's alleged that when I use my iPhone tethered it interferes with the wireless AV sender and I regularly get told to cease and desist. I've been desisting for so long and can't take it anymore!

djrm: 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!

Have you tried asking us for a nice new tablet?  We've got stacks of the things you know Tongue Out.

Anyway, I'd love a new router to replace the one I'm going to have to give back to Orcon when I switch ISP.  Or a new keyboard so I don't have to reach across the desk to reach my laptop keyboard.

I'd replace our Belkin Wireless Router, it's been playing up a bit recently and needs restarting in order for it to talk to our tablet or my cellphone and even the desktop.   It's fine with the laptop though which is good as it's on the most.

I have a tiny geek in the house who can't get enough of the jelly bean dreamscape on my SGSII - a copy of My Little Geek would be just the thing for her.

My keyboard should have been retired long ago. I have unplugged it to show off the adapter that converts the plug to a PS2. I could definitely do with a wireless one.

I'd like the my little geek book for my 10 month old geek who is obsessed with tablets, phones, keyboards, remote controls and keys...

We like books and news papers too...

I'd love to replace my Dynalink RTA1025WV.  The wifi is useless, it works sometimes but most of the time the wireless is extremely slow and times out repeatedly..  here is a photo of it failing to load Geekzone over wifi...

My Keyboard is also pretty old and clunky...
