Help my Mom go Android on the cheap via Moto Atrix

My 72 year-old, reasonably tech-savvy Mom is taking the smartphone plunge and planning to buy a Motorola Atrix via AT&T. On Amazon Wireless a new Atrix is 29 bucks, while the CostCo price is 90 bucks after rebate. Any difference, other than a couple of accessories and Amazon's extra cancellation fee before 180 days?

Reliable Internet Signal Booster

Are there any good & reliable INTERNET SIGNAL WIRELESS BOOSTERS on the market? I can only receive a very weak signal for my computer on the second floor. I have read reviews praising these devices to reviews stating that these boosters don't work at all. I would certainly appreciate any recommendations you can provide. Thanks in advance.

Help me access my external hard drive through my wireless router

Why is my wireless router WZR-HP-G300NH not mounting my USB External HD? I'm trying to access my Western Digital My Passport SE external hard drive through the wifi connection on the router. I have it plugged into the USB port on the router and it is powering on, but not mounting. What have I done wrong? How can I get this to work? Does anyone know how to go about accessing the hard drive files once it is mounting properly? I'll be using my MacBook to access the files and would like to stream my movies wirelessly from the external HD. [more inside]

Will two hundred megabytes bring me health, happiness and prosperity?

Is 200 MB enough? I got an Ipod Touch for my birthday. It does have WiFi access but I don't want to have to run into a cafe every time I need to look something up online. So I'm in the market for a mobile WiFi hotspot and a wireless data plan. The cheapest plans available -- and I'm all about the cheap -- typically offer you c. 200 MB a month. [more inside]

Daisy-chaining a wireless router

I have a Linksys WCG200 cable modem/wireless router combo device. It sucks at wireless (and extensive Googling has indicated that's unfixable), but it's OK at everything else. Can I pick up a $30 wireless router, plug that into the device I have now, and use that without any loss of quality? Would I need any other devices? Would it just be easier to get a new stand-alone cable modem as well?

iPad 3G cellular vs. wi-fi -- which takes precedence if both are active?

iPad 3G cellular vs. wi-fi -- which takes precedence if both are active? If I have 3G cellular turned on, while sitting at home with my home wireless, does it use the faster home wireless? Or does the 3G just clobber everything and gleefully rack up data charges? I've been turning it on and off as needed, but that's just annoying, so I'd like to get the question settled once and for all.
