  1. Omgosh, I’d love to win because I’m in desperate need of some updated technology!

  2. Why would I like to win this ultimate networking package? Just imagine someone who is still stuck in the barbaric dark ages of computer networking, dragging around 50 feet of cable line whenever they want to move their laptop from one area of the apartment to another, while using the internet. Tah dah! I want to join the modern age! :)

  3. This would be great – my house is getting more and more networked, but definitely need some upgrades in there for better performance.

  4. I would like to win because we just had a newborn and are in the middle of a move and can’t afford very much right now… This would be a great way to start off the new year in our new apartment.
    I am following you on Twitter and have liked you on Facebook!

  5. We would love to win this for our family because we have 4 computers in our house and one is a brand new gaming one my son just set up for school (starting college in January). We could really use the extra boost of power!! Our Linksys is 4 years old and out of date! Like and shared!

  6. Wow having a faster network setup would be great.
    I also studied a lot about the electronic market regarding wireless and broadband, so I have really good knowledge to how to set things up :)

  7. I have old hardware and it is finally time to update and expand my network. Time to break away from the cables and make my home network truly wireless.

  8. I would like to win just so that I could give a truly great present to my brother-in-law who is my technical support person – and he’s always available to help. He deserves this. :)

  9. With all the wireless wi-fi devices in our househould, we could really benefit from this! With laptops, Ipods, gaming playstation, wii, xbox, dsi, smart phones, & tablets… everything is wireless!

  10. I would like to win this package, so I can print wirelessly- yes, i’m a product of my generation…lazy!!! ;)

  11. This is awesome. Just installed new network wiring in home as well as a new wireless. This would be a great addition.

  12. Would be nice. Planning to move out on my own and this would really help to keep the price of internet down (since I would not have to buy all of these things on top of internet costs).

    Good luck to everyone else, this looks like quite the contest.

  13. I’m a gadget junky and would love to have a network from one company instead of the mishmash I have now plus those are some sweet looking gear black is my favorite colour

  14. I am attending school to get my bachelors degree in Game Design. We have internet at home, but no wireless. To further my studies and enjoy some time online with the laptop and my xbox at the same time would be a flat out Christmas miracle! Good luck to everyone who enters! This is a great giveaway.

    Thanks everyone! -James M.

  15. i would like to win the prize pack because my current router is a 4 year old netgear WNR834B v2 that has no case (just the PCB). i am also a sys admin and am currently in school for computer and network support technician at Humber College, and the pack would be a great asset in helping me to get my certificates

  16. My current wifi is super slow :( With this prize pack, I could finally skype my Nana. It was so hard to get her to understand that she can SEE me with a click on her computer, rather than call me up on the phone. Then I get home and thanks to my horrible network, my skype is all laggy. It was so hard to get an 80 year old woman to figure out skype- and now she gets too frustrated because I freeze 5 minutes into our conversation.
    This pack would be a wonderful way to connect us online :)

  17. This Cisco Networking package would be a great addition to our home. We have four computers and four televisions that are all in separate rooms. It would be wonderful to have a networking system like you are offering to make everything run a lot smoother.

    I will be keeping my fingers crossed for this giveaway.

    Thanks for the great opportunity. ~Pauline (

  18. This would be a great prize to win, i could donate what i don’t need to my workplace where they could put it to excellent use :)

  34. This would be a wonderful upgrade to my current “so 2005” home networking setup. What I have now works but could be so much better. I currently have 2 desktops, 2 laptops, 2 wii’s, a Xbox360 and a BluRay all mooching off my current setup. This would be awesome!!
