I have an old router as well -- a Linksys WRT54G v2.2 from 2004 or such. Recently updated the firmware to the latest version (which was released in 2005 ). All my internet traffic goes through that router. It still works perfectly without any issues, and the wireless signal quality is very good. It only supports 802.11g though.

Not PC hardware, but I use speakers and an amp that are older than me. Speakers are ~30 years old iirc, amp's even older.

Logitech G11 from 2007, works well still to this day. But looking for a replacement. Problem is so few keyboards have dedicated media keys. Think I will just end up making my own media panel.

If it counts as hardware or audio, I still use my grandpa's Phillips Bi Ampli radio built in 1962. Has an awesome 10 valve amp and still sounds amazing! Sat in his old car shop for 25 years and never skipped a beat.

Do I win?

I love those kind of amps. Using a similar one from Telefunken built in 1960. I'm modernizing it to have more common connectors (RCA and XLR inputs in place of din5 and speaker connetors in place of din2). Currently building cabinets for it's speakers (amp and speakers was housed in a huge furniture). The only thing I wasn't able to restore was the turning table, but for that purpose I have a Pathe-Marconi valve RIAA amp ^^.



The turning table is located under the top cover.



Except that, the sound is amazing, full, opend, warm. Can't go back to "computer speakers" now. Been found in the street and never left my mAudio sound card since then . I'll make pic and worklog once finished. Current stage :

A 40GB portable hard drive, USB1, bought in 2004 for close to £200, IIRC. Works fine as a backup for important documents, allthough I'm paranoid about a drive of that age failing- especially one that's been dropped a couple of times.

Our Klipsch CS-500 amp died yesterday, it lived at great total of 47 months (11 more than the warranty). As a replacement, I installed my fathers Nikko NR-700 1981, these things are solid as a rock and deliver the goods.
