Router too old for iPad?

My friend bought an iPad. It works great everywhere but at home - apps take a long time to load or don't load at all. Apple says her existing router (Netgear) is too old and sold her an Airport Express. Can she plug in the existing router to the Airport Express (instead of connecting it to the modem) to create a stronger wireless signal or will that just create conflict? What else can we do?

Hooking up a GameCube to an Acer LCD monitor

I have an old GameCube that, until recently, has been chilling with my best friend halfway across the country. Having moved into a new apartment, I thought longingly about the fun I had farming in Harvest Moon, trotting about as Mario, commandeering Link through various worlds, winning the heart of Zel... the point is, that I'm getting it back.

Why can't I connect to my neighbor's open wireless network?

My downstairs neighbor has given me permission to connect to her open wireless network. The network looks unsecured, doesn't ask for a password, just tells me "unable to connect," except once when it seemed to connect but told me I had a weak or limited connection. The signal is strong.

Connect Intel Macbook to basic TV?

Even after reading these forums, I still can't get my head around exactly what I need to connect my Macbook to my basic, non-HD TV. What I would love is if someone could give me specific product ID numbers from Monoprice for each cable/adapter that I need. Here are photos of my Macbook and the back of my basic, 5-year old Toshiba TV. Thanks so much!

How to show computer desktop and video on LCD TV

Hi, I'm looking for a way to show my computer's desktop on my large LCD TV so my wife and I can both see it. I have a used an s-video cable (along with an audio cable) from my laptop to the TV, but there are three problems with this method. 1) requires a reboot of my laptop to make it recognize the TV and play to it 2) text is blurry on the TV due to TV's unsuitability for acting as a computer monitor 3) requires the s-video cable to be plugged into the otherwise wirelessly connected laptop So I'm looking for a solution that will eliminate these problems. Like maybe something that will just play my desktop as a video signal to the TV and not try to make the TV into another monitor of my computer. Also, I'm not looking for HDTV quality, just watchable video (internet quality would be fine.) Thanks!
