  1. WE THE NORTH, thanks Raptors. What a game.
  2. This rain was more than a 1/2" in my pool; central Ajijic down by the lake.
  3. 52 years since the Leafs won the Stanley Cup and 26 years since the Blue Jays won the World Series. Maybe every 26 years we should win a championship. I think this is the Raptors year. Gives the Leafs 26 more years to get their act together.
  4. Absolutely no discussion about the NBA finals; must all be Golden State fans. Go Raptors.
  5. Not completely correct. My IPTV service works fine thro a US VPN without an Ilox public IP address.
  6. The Ilox modem manual says max operating temperature of 45 deg C. Right now mine says optical operating temperature of 49.13 deg C. Can anyone else check their temps and let me know.
  7. Back up to normal; down 35 minutes that I am aware of. We see more down time with Ilox than we ever had with Telmex. I personally think it is the cheap Ilox modem; gonna ask for a new one. I have had the same Telmex modem for 11 years and now get a steady 18 Mbps download every time I switch over which has been every day lately.
  8. Now down 10; up 27 Mbps We are central Ajijic by the lake.
  9. 290 Kbps download speed on Fast.com; fourth day in a row that this has happened.
  10. Computer Guy; sorry never intended to hijack your thread; just a sarcastic comment. The Ilox installers are professionals; at least mine was and why would they cut a Telmex cable when it could easily be tracked back to them. My guess is that some posters checked their Telmex line after porting to Ilox and found it didn’t work or at installation Ilox asked if they could disconnect the Telmex line, or something else. Anyways, why do you want this info; to take it to Ilox with a complaint ? good luck on that.
  11. more important question; has anyone other than NLU cut their Ilox line/service.
  12. Ilox streaming TV constantly buffering tonight; switched over to Telmex and no buffering;. Ilox on a speedtest is 90 Mbps and Telmex is 9 Mbps; Telmex streams a better signal without buffering
  13. Our Ilox service was connected in late March; since then our Telmex service has increased from about 7 to nearly 20 megs. The Telmex modem software used to indicate 10 as the max download speed; I have tried to fool with this in the past without success. We used to get a bump from 7 to 9 when the snowbirds went home but this time Telmex has changed the speed governor inside their modem software to 20 meg and the download speed has stayed constant at close to 20. FYI, Ilox fiber optic service through an Asus router running NordVPN on Wifi; Fast.com speedtest is about 30 megs at 2.4 GHz WIFI and 80-90 on 5 GHz; both computers within 15 feet of the Asus router; tells me I need a 5 GHz adapter for my laptop. Speed is slightly faster with VPN turned off. I have a lot more testing to do but right now the Ilox service seems sleepy (slow to respond and connect to a website) and the Telmex service at 19 megs seems to be quite responsive; on both computers. For these initial tests I have used the same Asus router with NordVPN running plugged into the Telcel modem and Ilox modem. Same opinion on both computers; Ilox seems sleepy. As I said more testing to be done before my 12 months with Ilox runs out. I never intended to cancel my Telmex service; at least not right away and glad I didn't.
  14. WOW ; this thread became a total waste of time like most on this board....
  15. Ilox speed seems to drops off to dead slow (falls asleep) if you are not using it continuously; my Telmex service seems to be faster at browsing at 8 mbs speed.
  16. So is anyone thrilled with Ilox? File download speeds are great; but i find just surfing the web is poor.
  17. I get 100 mps download on Ilox both ethernet and wireless with VPN. The problem many are having is NOT the VPN; it is the router with VPN that doesn't have adequate processing capability. Please look at routers with dual core processors etc; Asus RT-AC86U is what I am using with NordVPN. VPNs don't slow down the download speed significantly; slow VPN routers with low processing capability slow down the download speed. I love high speed with Ilox and Asus.
  18. The Mobile Passport app works great; no one in line when I went through IAH earlier this week. Download before you go; you need to take your picture and add passport info for you and anyone else travelling with you. When you land open the app and select your entry airport and that is about it; follow the lines for Mobile Passport.
  19. Some VPNs slow the download speed more than others. Router processor speed has a significant effect on download speed. I just upgraded my router to an Asus RT-AC86U with 1.8 GHz dual core processor and my download speed is the same with VPN on or off with Telcel at 10 mbps.
  20. Not sure the cement holding the pole has enough time to cure properly; I think it was poured Monday of this week.
  21. Headed north into Guad take the ramp on the right just before you get to the Periferico and then keep left. There are some stop lights; turn left and you are on the Periferico headed west.
  22. Get an unlocked "GSM" phone; usually advertised that it will work with ATT or T-Mobile; these phones will work with Telcel or ATT Mexico.
  23. I was involved in a 5 car accident 6 or 7 tears ago; not my fault. The ambulance was called but no one had any injuries. The police came after the ambulance had come and left and then everyone knew that the rich gringo with the new car had insurance; just about everyone developed neck problems. Since I refused to take responsibility for the medical expenses they started putting all the drivers in the police pickup truck to take us all to jail until someone would accept responsibility for the medical expenses. It was amazing how quickly all the neck injuries healed and no one went to jail. My insurance adjuster told me that my car insurance policy included something similar to a bond to get me out of jail immediately.
  24. Just filled up at the BP near Los Sabinos; no line.
