  1. Not to be rude, but this information is useless. Can I please explain this once and for all? 1. Ethernet is almost always faster and more secure than wireless. The reason a tech person would recommend wireless on the Firestick 4k is as follows: the ethernet adapter that Amazon sells for their FS4K is a 10/100mbps adapter. This means that data downloads are capped at 100mbps. I have a 350mbps account with ILOX. So using the Amazon internet adapter would significantly lower my speeds. In this case, WiFi is the better choice. So, this is not saying that WiFi is faster than Ethernet (it's not). It is just in this case WiFi makes more sense due to the limitations of the adapter cable. There is a way to get higher speeds on the FS4K ethernet port, but it's not certified by Amazon. Since I don't use the FS4K, I can't vouch for it's usability. 2. Another thing to take into consideration is that sometimes the ethernet ports on older modems are 10/100 ports and not 10/100/1000. My ILOX modem has 2 ethernet inputs. 1 is 10/100 and the other is 10/100/1000. Make sure you check the documentation before you set up an ethernet connection.
  2. Can anyone direct me to a site where I can download/print my RFC #. TIA
  3. I was just notified by Telmex that I can make an appointment to upgrade to fiber. Has anyone had this done, and if so, do they run fiber into the home or do they use the existing copper connection and link to a fiber backbone? Thanks
  4. This is for the Municipio de Guadalajara. I'm not sure you can get the second shot if your first shot was in the Municipio de Tlajomulco. Requisitos de vacunación para adultos mayores: Acreditar con el INE ser adulto mayor de 60 años. Llevar tu comprobante de la 1er aplicación en el mismo municipio. Translation - Bring proof of your first dose from the same municipio. Formarse en la fila y seguir las indicaciones del personal de salud. Al formarse recibirás una ficha la cual deberá presentarse al ingresar.
  5. It's possible. If you have a 150Mbps plan from ILOX, let's say, and you're getting Wi-fi speeds of around 120-130Mbps, it will be faster because one of the ports on the two port ILOX modem is only a 10/100 Ethernet port. I found this out the hard way. But yes, you're correct. All things being equal a wired connection will always be faster and more stable than a Wi-Fi Connection.
  6. I have ILOX. I have 5 friends who have ILOX. We've never had any issues with streaming mainstream providers such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO etc.....As Lcscats stated, for some reason ILOX has issues with some illegal IPTV services, with or without a VPN. I have the same IPTV provider as Lcscats, and it works great.
  7. You are getting some very bad information from some of the members. First, who is your internet provider? Second, go to Google and type "Ookla Speedtest" and run the test. Let me know the PING number (in milliseconds) and the DOWNLOAD number (in Mbps). The numbers will reveal what is possible on your Firestick.
  8. Real Debrid has nothing to do with Live TV.
  9. Name something better for $50 US. The only one I can think of is the Chromecast TV. And please don't say Roku. They are great devices but not if you want to sideload apps.
  10. You may be able to change the mind of "an" anti-masker. You just won't change the mind of "this" anti-masker. He's pretty much incapable of admitting error or contrition. He just wants to "own the libs". That's the agenda.
  11. You said in your original post that the study was "peer reviewed". The study's author is a physical therapist, for f's sake. The publication lied about his credentials (or the author did). Why can't you just man-up and apologize for posting misleading information. The "study" was not peer reviewed and you make yourself look very small for defending this misinformation. Please research before you post. It would be a great help to this forum. Waiting for the counterattack. You're not known for any semblance of self-reflection.
  12. The study that MC posted last week about facemasks shows that the author, Baruch Vainshelboim " is listed as part of the cardiology division at the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System at Stanford University." "But he has no affiliation with Stanford, according to the university. Stanford School of Medicine spokeswoman Julie Greicius said in a prepared statement that Stanford supports the use of face masks to control the spread of COVID-19." "A LinkedIn account for Vainshelboim lists his profession as a clinical exercise physiologist. He did not respond to a request for comment." "The article appeared in the journal Medical Hypotheses, which its publisher says has the purpose “to publish interesting theoretical papers.” David Gorski, a surgical oncologist who writes about medical misinformation, told The Associated Press the journal publishes "fringe science and hypotheses." Why am I not the least bit surprised. Here's the full article: Fact Check
  13. Yes. Here's the location: https://goo.gl/maps/NNetXdk43cmqRnCy6
  14. You should contact the Municipio de Tlajomulco after today and find out if any residents were denied access to the vaccine due to shortages. Please post when you receive an answer. Then we can talk about ethics and morality.
  15. They absolutely know more. We went to the government site and it stated you have to be a resident of Tlajomulco Municipio to receive the Pfizer shot. After reading stories on the Covid-19 Facebook group, we discovered that the University in Tlajomulco wasn't enforcing the residency requirement, and we got vaccinated. Invaluable information.
  16. I've never understood why people who are leery of FB just don't setup a throwaway email and create a FB account with a fake name and no personal information. The Lakeside Covid-19 group is a great resource in times like these.
  17. If you live west of Ajijic you may want to try this route: https://goo.gl/maps/a61w7bNpbcgZdbzd7 We went Wednesday, arriving at 1:00 and there was only one car ahead of us in the line. The whole thing took less than 30 minutes. They give you a Comprobante (proof of 1st visit). To reiterate what others have said: You must have the registration form printed from the gov. website and a copy of your CURP. We also had our passports, visas (permanente) and a utility bill, but they only looked at the CFE bill.
  18. IPTV in some cases is illegal. Go back to the website and use a little creative thinking.
  19. Yeah, it's pretty odd to be offering speeds over 100Mbps and not have all 1000Mbps ports. I bought this to take care of the problem: 5 port unmanaged switch
  20. Definitely the Firestick 4K.
  21. OK, I finally figured it out. My Ilox AN5506-02-F has two Lan ports. Port 1 supports 1000Mbps while Port 2 only supports 100Mbps. I plugged my TP Link into Port 1 and now have 220Mbps wireless (5Ghz) according to Fast.com Even faster on Ookla:
  22. Hard wired to the Ilox modem. Port set to 80 on Ilox modem. I have the option on the TP Link to set Duplex to 1000Mbps, but it won't apply the settings. It must have something to do with the router/modem handshake, or perhaps a faulty router. Hey, thanks for your time.
