I do this every time I have more than I can use. Typically it goes okay when I use Craigslist, but I thought I might try it here on the blog. These are free and I’ll ship anywhere in the US.
1. Dell Latitude 2120 netbook: You can look up the specs — this is the cheaper of the two versions. I thought it had died at one point, but it was a simple case of overheating. I’ve used it running Linux for a couple of years, but it has a legitimate code for Win7 on it. I’m willing to install any brand of Linux you like or try to put Win7 back on it for you. It comes with the charger, a battery good for 4-5 hours, a small shoulder bag and short-tailed netbook mouse. taken
D-Link N300 (DIR-615 Rev.E) home router: This is currently running DD-WRT, very secure and stable. It supports a/b/g wifi standards and it’s not too bad in a small house or apartment. It can broadcast the wifi signal through a wall or two, and outside just a little ways (I shared it with my neighbor who connected while sitting on the stairs outside our door). It has plenty of life left in it. gone
Linksys WRT54G2: This is not the legendary boxy blue thing, but looks like a spaceship. It’s got the original firmware to the last update. The wifi is a/b/g and works pretty good in the same room with your mobile device. It can broadcast through some walls, but unlikely more than one. gone
I can also toss in an ethernet cable for all of these if you need it. I also have stuff like keyboards, cables and whatnot. Feel free to ask questions about this stuff.
