I guess this won't be straightforward change as the majority of users would associate f5 to the keyboard key naturally than the load balancer (especially on stackoverflow, but may differ on serverfault). Should we create a tag named f5-networks for question relating to the load balancers and related hardware?

I don't see the point in having F5 as a representation of the F5 key. What those users are meaning to express is the process of reloading a page.
I'm in favour of letting
f5 be the tag for the load balancer product, and re-tagging all key related questions to
page-reload or something (if the tag makes sense at all. In my opinion, it could just be removed.)
I personally can't see any need for an entire tag corresponding to using the F5 key, but that does seem to be the primary usage for it (I'd argue this is simply bad tagging practices). 28 questions isn't exactly a daunting amount to go through and tag appropriately, so the existing f5 tag could simply be re-purposed to refer specifically to the load balancers.
The tag wiki will need to be updated to make its intended usage clear, regardless of what we decide it should be used for.
