  1. same with me - rather poor quality for the TV channels
  2. Just there today Sunday, and Firemen say they have enough food donated, but they need thick gloves (like garden gloves) to avoiid being burned by the file. If anyone has some old garden or very thick gloves, they will appreciate your donation at the firehouse on the libramiento, (just before the schools on the libramiento) following are some Facebook excerpts on the subject 🍃 30 firefighters are up there working 🍃 they are cover on drinks, foods and tools. 👉🏼 🔥 They need 20 pair of “Carnaza” GLOVES for gardening and 4 FIRST AID kits in bags, so they can bring with them. Their hads are in need of care and love, if you have Burn Cream, lavander essential oil on cream also Calendula will be helpful. 🍃 the area still on fire is under control, they think. They plan to take it over today, and check all the area got damaged to make sure all is well for the best. 🧡 I would love to have a public event at the plaza after this is over and they are rested to thank them, creat a plan to improve their conditions and make a campaign to prevent future fires. Also have the Red Cross ladies. They are very grateful for all the support 🙏
  3. Update: it took a lot of time and effort, but ILOX did deliver the two items that were not working in the original instllation 1) the camera's are now accessible from the internet (as of about 10 days ago) 2) the LAN functionality now appears to be working In other words, one PC on the home LAN can see the others in the home LAN. Prior to today, all the devices in the LAN could connect to the internet and viceversa, but not to each other. they now corrected this limitation. they claim they need to do it as it is not a user controlled feature, but claim that all future installations will have this capability As they say - better late , than never.
  4. Tkessler has indeed been very helpful with me in identifying and then a work around using the switch ( muchas gracias, Tom), so things are improving, however, as a user, my expectation was to get a system that works equal or better than the previous one. This is indeed still work in progress, and I hope that ILOX will provide a solution within their router. The 'switch" addition solves the problem of connections within the LAN, but the wireless devices ( Ie cell phone) still cannot communicate with other LAN members, since the switch does not have WiFi. Awaiting further ideas on this.
  5. UPDATE THERE APPEARS TO BE A MAJOR FLAW IN THE ILOX ROUTER program ( I AM USING THE BLACK ONE WITH 4 LAN PORTS IN THE BACK) It appears that the ILOX router ports CANNOT communicate with one another - but only between each port and the internet . Hence there is no 'LAN netwrok" as it is supsed to be, just access to the internet from each LAN connection. by connecting the ILOX router via a single LAN cable to a switch, and connecting all the local PC's and camera controller to that new switch, I can now see from my PC all hte other PC's and the camera controller on the LAN. Interestingly, even the wireless connections to the ILOX router cannot communicate to the other members of the LAN, but only to the internet. Unless ILOX can reverse this, they are bound to lose a lot of business. This is still work in progress, but so far these are the findings and the results. Makes no sense why the LAN ports in the ILOX router cannot communicate with one another, but only to the internet.
  6. The camera system is indeed connected via a LAN cable to the router. there are two switches along the route. Again, all worked fine with the Telmex router. the moment the cable was moved to the new Ilox router, it stopped working. the Security system has a fixed IP address. ILOX folks came to the house yesterday, and after much phone conversations with ILOX headqurters and doing all kind of thigns ( openning the desired ports, and other stuff I am not clearly aware of) - came to the conclusion that there is nothing else they can do, and that the problem is with my equipment ?? When I type in the IP address of the static camera system, I keep getting the message that the network is fine, but the unit does not respond. Does any one out there has an ILOX router wherethe security camera system is working properly both locally, as well es remotely via the Internet ?? PS my security camera system is Lorex brand.
  7. Is that the ILOX installer or the Security camera system installer ? - cold you clarify ( by the way, the security camera system does have a static IP address.)
  8. Just had ILOX installed - great speeds ( 66 mbs down, 16 mbs uplink). However cannot get the security cameras to work. they worked great with Telemex router before the switchover. Any adjustments or 'tricks' to get it working??
  9. Any experience with joint problems with Dr. Jorge Alejandro Molina Duenas, who comes from Guadalajara on Tuesdays and Thursdays and does his procedure in Dra. Justina Jimenez place (Clinica de Rehabilitacion Intergral) on the caretera in west Ajijic ( about 50 yards west of Yves restaurant) ? The doctor advises that his procedure for joint 'repair" is a 4-session procedure (costing 2,000 pesos each) . Session 1 involves injecting Ozone gas in the eroded joint to expand it and make dor future injections.space Sessions 2,3, and 4 a week apart each involve injecting one's own blood plasma (treated by centrifuge). Each session lasts 15-30 minutes total, and there is no lingering pain. The doctor used the following terms in explaining what he uses: Bio systema ( some kind of powder that is also injected with the plasma) Ozone therapy PRP ( Platelet Rich Plasma Injection into the joint) Terapia Neuaal ( alocal anesthetic) He claims he has been doing it for 7 years including one year at Lakeside. If anyone has experience with this doctor/procedure (especially relating to the hip joint). Please share your experiences, especially if you see improvements over the long run.

  11. I am told that pictures ( as proof) were taken of similar situations in Ajijic and sent recently to "Movilidad" - the transito office on the carretera, a few feet before the Chapala main traffic light, and nothing was done becase transito said they have no equipment (cranes?) to remove the cars. they did not even post signs to the effect that "if you don't move the ar in 72 hours it will be towed. Maybe if someone knows the head of transito, then it can change the priority ?
  12. If someone knows where is the better quality x-ray machine in Ajijic/Chapala area, please advise ( for abdominal area x-ray)
  13. Just came back today from Guadalajara to renew IMSS for the next 12 month. This is renewal #15 for me. Wanted to let all that the rates went up from last year ( The 'official' info available on line still show same rates as last year.) Age 60-69 $10,350 pesos Age 70-79 $ 10,750 pesos The process takes about 25-30 minutes per person - windows 21 and 22 on the first floor. (average based on the few folks in front of me. Then you have to go to window #5 downstairs, and get a payment voucher and then pay (involves going to a bank ( closest one HSBC ) which they have an account with and is about 1/2 mile away. Then you go back with the payment recipt from the bank back to window 21 or 22 (you do not have to wait on line - just go to the window), - show the apid recipt, and they will give you the final documents for the year.
  14. Sonia, ( or any other who knows) - I read your posting 3 times, and still don't understand McTavish comment - so if you could restate why renewing IMSS is a waste of time and money (McTavish comments) - I would greatly appreciate it All I am looking for is a simple explanation.
  15. I don't understand the comment - please explain. All I want is to keep my medical insurance by renewing my IMSS which I have now for 15 years. How is that a wast of time and money ?? Would appreciate a factual response
  16. Thanks - appreciate the feedback
  17. The information in question provided from Sonia above is for Seguro Popular - NOT for IMSS I am looking for anyone who actually RENEWED their IMSS in JALISCO this year (2019), as to what documents were required (a very specific question). If anyone has done it - or if Sonia knows - please share.
  18. Has any one gone to IMSS to renew this year ? If so, please share what documents were required THIS YEAR
  19. I spoke two days ago to the Chapala place who handled it in the past. he said that he has not yet received acreditiation this year, and was not sure if they will get it. Asked to check back in February for an update
  20. TOMORROW , Sunday Oct. 21, 2018 8 AM - 11 AM AT THE PLAZA IN AJIJIC. Please come to sign the petition to stop the building of apartment complexes on the mountain of Tepalo. We need as many signatures as possible to stop this project. *BRING PHOTO ID OR PROOF OF ADDRESS* Please share! — in Ajijic, Jalisco, Mexico.
  21. Lots of discussions on this track, but almost no recommendations of doctors here in Mexico. If anyone has had a hip replacement , and can recommend doctors here in Mexico - Please please, please do so. It would be greatly appreciated.
  22. I also need a recommendation for a very likely hip replacement for a 60 yrs old. Just had MRI with a diagnosis of Avascular Necrosis in the the hip/femur. ( awaiting a meeting with the doctor after the MRI interpretation) We have private Mexican insurance. Really looking for success stories and a recommendation of a surgeon who has done this repeatedly and successfully . Also if there are surgeons to avoid please let me know either on the board, or via a PM
