  1. I just realized that there are several lakeside streaming services. Are you talking about this one? https://www.facebook.com/LakesideTVboxes/ If this is the one my review stands.
  2. It's a very good service. It runs on a CDN network (content delivery network) so the channels are very stable (unlike a lot of IPTV providers). Highly recommended.
  3. Not true. I know from firsthand experience. It may say that on the IRS site, but that's not how it's working, at least for me and several others.
  4. You don't have the highest speed. You have the middle tier.
  5. I was referring to "The bad news is that you will suffer on this board by many people telling you how wrong you are!"
  6. There is no "right" or "wrong". Some people have had bad experiences, many others are enjoying the service. I think it's the same with all telecommunication services around the globe. It was the same in the States with AT&T, Comcast etc............
  7. Just to provide a balance. I've had ILOX for a little over a year with very few problems. My speeds are as advertised (100Mbps) and there have been few outages. I find the pricing very reasonable - $629.00 per month. My suggestion has always been NOT to buy the TV package. There is a new service called Directv Go in Mexico. It's about $13.00 US per month and has quite a few English language channels. https://www.unocero.com/entretenimiento/cine-y-tv/directv-go-servicio-streaming-mexico/ You can also subscribe to Sling TV, Hulu Live, YouTube TV, Fubo TV, etc.... if you use the right VPN. The only thing I found disappointing was the modem supplied by ILOX. It has a very weak wifi signal but I took care of the problem by purchasing a WiFi Router on Amazon for about $80 US.
  8. You don't order from the local store You setup an account on https://www.walmart.com.mx/?gclid=CjwKCAjw5vz2BRAtEiwAbcVILzRb5GcOHgSK59GK23EYllOZz6CY3e2OetOi_1DReHlZr7I4pyjgUxoCiawQAvD_BwE and enter all of your information there. Once your address is entered it tells them which store to deliver from.
  9. OK, you'll have no problem. That's a very small coverage area. You'll plug the cable into your modem at the house and run it to the wifi router in the casita. The wifi router will have it's own separate network/password from the house modem. I would look at these: Best Wifi routers under $100
  10. First of all, the place you're running the cable to: How much area do you have to cover with your wireless signals?
  11. Let me know what you're getting after the shutdown. You're not running a VPN by any chance, are you?
  12. I have the Archer A9 AC1900 Also, remember that speeds may be a little slower right now due to Covid 19 restrictions. There's a lot of people at home using a lot of bandwidth. 58mbps isn't great, but it's not unreasonalble. You should be able to stream anything including UHD with 58mbps. One other thing: try unplugging the modem and leave it off for about 10 minutes. This will refresh the IP and DNS settings. Then do another speed test. Use https://fast.com/
  13. No. Repeaters just amplify signal. Extenders create a network.
  14. Hundreds on Mercado Libre. Many on Amazon.mx. Many on Amazon.us that ship to Mexico. Stick with reputable brands like Netgear, Linksys, Asus, TP-Link. PC Mag Best Routers 2020
  15. Did you try connecting a computer directly to the modem via ethernet? If you did, are you getting around 70mbps? If you're not, a new router is not going to fix the problem.
  16. Amazon USA has plenty to choose from that ship to Mexico. Compare with Amazon.mx and check prices with the shipping costs. Sometimes it's cheaper to buy from the States even with the shipping and VAT. Several good brands are Netgear, TP-Link, Asus. Installing is really very simple. You will still use your ILOX modem, and you'll use the new one as a wireless access point (WAP). It will connect to your existing modem via ethernet cable. After setup is complete, you'll turn off the ILOX modem's wireless signals, and you're good to go. I use a TP-Link WAP (cost about $80). I'm 20 feet from the router and get 90% of the speeds I get when I have a wired connection.
  17. You have to set the language preferences in account settings. All of the U.S. networks are in both the original English and dubbed Spanish.
  18. Like John Shrall said, a wireless access point is your best option. I use one and my speeds are almost identical to wired speeds and I'm about 20 feet from the router. Just remember that this doesn't replace your Ilox modem, it plugs into it via ethernet cable. And remember to turn off your wifi on the Ilox modem after setup, as you don't want a lot of wireless signals in your house.

  20. You know, I've been through this with her before, about a month ago. She posted the same thing, I PM'd her and never got a reply. Maybe she's just #*!!%% with our heads.
  21. Here's what I get for payment options:
  22. Could you please post a screenshot of the PayPal option? I've never seen it, and I've bought dozens of things on Mercado Libre.
  23. If it's a new TV, it should have an ethernet port. I don't know how close your TV is to your modem, but if it's feasible, this would be the best solution.
