  1. If you expect an answer you might tell us where and which company or you just complaining?
  2. Unless you run streaming audio or such 24 hours a day you don't know how many times a day Telmex drops out. Some are server problems but for sure I can say Totalplay is a better product.
  3. OK I had ILOX (350) and Totalplay (100) and ran streaming audio 24 hours a day. ILOX would go out 8 times an hours on average. Totalplay maybe 4 times a day. Totalplay phone works, ILOX never did work. ILOX only worked with Clear Choice streaming provider, Total play works with all of them. I have since dropped ILOX as it is not needed and go with only Totalplay. Same exact problems with neighbors ILOX. They went to Totalplay. Glad someone has had good luck with ILOX but it wasn't myself or my friends in SE SAT.
  4. Note not all routers can be configured as an access point easily. You can end up with double NAT connection which can cause problems sometimes especially with gaming. An access point is made out of the box to be a WIFI extender. I have one 10 year old access point that has four SMA antenna and the ability to have higher power is I choose too. If I was doing it over now I would put in a mesh system.
  5. They work sometimes. You have to be close to the original modem for them to work well. They are not a miracle product. I prefer to use an access point. They come in two types. One needs a internet cable connection the other uses WIFI to be repeated. Many people put a mesh system which works best but costs most. Ask around some of your friends have done this before. Good luck!
  6. Add 2 hours at the airport waiting for the 35 min flight.
  7. Folks the sparker things are NOT Tasers. A taser ejects a small string and with hooks on the end and supplies a current. I know because I was stupid enough to volunteer to be tased once. These are not legal. The noise making (sound of sparks) are legal but require contact to work other than the noise. Unit gets you too close to the dogs mouth which I try to avoid. Lets get our terms correct to avoid confusion. People at Ajijic wednesday market near the key maker sell these legal sparking units. Carried one for years and useful on most dogs but the most aggressive dogs it had no effect. Now I carry a rock like the mexicans it works much better on the aggressive dogs.
  8. Sorry but ILOX infrastructure was new and it sucked from the start and still sucks. Drop outs every hour. The phone never worked. I was also a Telecom engineer and worked with Glass fiber and plastic fiber and its pretty rugged stuff as long as you keep the backhoe and tree trimmers away.
  9. I was one of the first totalplay customers and it has gone down once when a pole was hit and the phone has never failed excluding pole being hit. Was going to keep ILOX as a backup but decided to cancel due to a lack of need. I have 100 down and 10 up service and can watch a streaming HD movie while my wife does a video call and we have streaming audio running all at the same time with no problems. If you work from home and move files to the north you might want more upload speed but for normal stuff its just not needed. Best decision I have ever made regarding internet.
  10. They can help or not. So it depends. The booster has to be close enough to the modem to get a good signal and than rebroadcast that signal. I would buy an access point box myself rather than the plug into the wall ac plug type of repeater.
  11. Last I checked she was taking appointments three months ahead. She is busy.
  12. Than why did Pedro say I am not a safe rider? I rode for 30 years and never went down. I was trained at a motorcycle driving school. Defending drum brakes?
  13. What Is Countersteering? ... Simply, countersteering is pressing FORWARD on the handlebar in the direction you want to go above roughly 12mph. If you want to go right, press forward on the right handlebar to go right. We press on the handlebar to cause the motorcycle to lean in the direction we want to go. Is counter steering Safe? While it takes practice to get right, the benefits of counter-steering are massive. When done correctly, it results in smoother, safer, faster riding. Many riders use counter-steering without realizing it, but they may not be doing so correctly. Pedro you could have spent five seconds reading about countersteering and admit you don't know how to countersteer.
  14. Actually it is much safer to use countersteering than to lean. Look it up. I learned it at motorcycle riding school. Leaning is much much slower way to steer.
  15. Go to Google, type totalplay, engage google translate.
  16. All those 125cc scooters and 125cc honda small bikes do not require a special license. I believe a special multiple day class with piloting a bike is needed. My test in Oregon was driving in a big parking lot left, left, left and stop on a curved line to show you could control the bike braking and use turn signals. I am amazed at the number of folks with new big bikes that don't understand that ABS in a car or bike needs a little bit of training. I have taught a number of people how to use ABS and none of them knew how to steer and brake. In fact one panicked when the ABS system pulsated the brake pedal for the first time. Simple stuff but training is needed. I will be happy when costs come down so the average bike can have ABS at least on the front wheel so one can steer and brake.
  17. Yes. Clearchoice works well also. I use an Android TV box for both.
  18. Total body care on Ocampo in Ajijic my wife says. My wife uses Camile but others are good also.
  19. Hate to say it but its just not safe to ride a bike,scooter or moto around here. Also many folks just don't see folks on two wheels and yes I drove bikes and large motocycles in PNW before I stopped riding. I was the only fellow who did not limp in our group of riders and most of them were hurt by four wheelers not seeing them. I imagine truck did not see him. So SAD!
  20. My post had nothing to do with ATM or Visa or Mastercard. Money goes from BOA to XE bank than sent converted to Pesos to BBVA. This is a better process than USD check due to BBVA converting dollars to pesos at a less than good rate. XE rate is fine as I am not willing to play ATM roulette like many of you do.
  21. We get very good rates from XE also and money is coverted to Pesos away from local bank for example.
