Hello folks

I have a couple of things here that are looking for a good home... It could be yours! I will draw two names from the replies here and give each of the items. Extra points (entries) for those with pictures!

Item #1: Linksys EA6500

The AE6500 is the first Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router with 802.11ac technology delivering powerful performance with Wi-Fi speeds up to 450+1300 Mbps. The Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router AC 1750 HD Video Pro has the best Wi-Fi performance in the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi router portfolio.

Item #2: Rapoo E8090

Ultra thin, light, stainless steel body wireless keyboard with touchpad.

Item #3:

Two copies of My Little Geek ABC bookFrom Android to Zombie, this educational book will keep the little ones and parents entertained all night long.

How to enter the competition (make sure you read it):  

. Reply to this thread with comments on what hardware you'd be replacing (wireless or keyboard) and how bad your current one is.

2. You get an extra entry if your reply has a picture of your current gear. It has to be yours (if possible post with something like a Geekzone page in the background).  

The fineprint:  
This competition is open until the 11th December, when we will draw four entries, one for each item/unit. Open to our New Zealand-based readers only. No purchase necessary. Previously banned users are not eligible to win. Only one reply in this topic. Multiple entries in this topic will invalidate all your entries.

I need to replace my old Dynalink RTA-1025W router (2008 vintage). There seems to be some sort of incompatibility between it and my S3 phone; my phone can only connect sometimes to this router but has no problems with any other routers.

This is our existing Dynalink ISP supplied router. It tends to drop the connection regularly (though it has improved since I installed a master splitter).

One day I'll get around to finishing all my network cabling behind the router. It's a bit of a rat's nest there presently. Embarassed
