    Has anyone had experience paying for their driver's license renewal through the Bancomer account?  Any problems with the Chapala  office accepting the receipt when you have gone to renew? 


    I paid at the Bancomer in Ajijic.  No problems.  Just make sure you write your name on the receipt and the copy.

    "Realizar el pago de licencia en caja recaudadora, en línea o banco CitiBanamex 01105420451 o BBVA 0100236381, cuenta a nombre de Secretaría de la Hacienda Pública. Presentar tiquet de pago legible con su nombre en original y copia"

  2. There is a couple who are making Thai food for delivery only.  It's the best I've had since I've lived here and compares favorably to some of my favorite Thai restaurants from NOB.  You have to order in advance.  They are open Wed - Sat 1:00 - 7:30.  If you want a delivery on Saturday you should probably order Friday.  


    Priscila & Eduardo
    Phone: 984 139 4977 (you can order on Whatsapp or call - English is spoken).  Here is a link Thai Food and More and here is the regular menu.  You won't be disappointed.

    Has anyone had experience with this streaming device? We currently are using Dish...they keep dropping channels and, yet, the price remains the same! The latest victim is ABC. We are thinking about streaming but, would greatly appreciate some comments..pro or con. Thanking you in advance!


    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.

    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.

    If you haven't filed in 2018 or 2019 then they will deposit to the account that SS uses. If you have filed taxes with  refund they will deposit in the account you used fr refund. 

    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.

    As far as internet...I am lucky to be in an area covered by ILox...pay $595 for the highest speed and get a constant 90 - 100 download. Do not include the phone option however (Many negative reports here including mine)...get the Telmex basic phone for a little under $200 per month. ILox also has a Mexican TV package but do not know anything about that.

    You don't have the highest speed.  You have the middle tier.

    I believe that I was the first  here at Lakeside to experience the ILOX nightmare!

    I didn't think that the ILOX nightmare could be worse for someone else than it was for me!

    I was wrong!

    I feel for you!

    The good news is that you don't have to suffer with ILOX any longer.

    The bad news is that you will suffer on this board by many people telling you how wrong you are!

    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............

  8. 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.

    What is the link to the Ajicic store for home delivery?  Most of the posts mention delivery person not wearing a mask has that changed recently? How do you go about using a credit card for purchases? please reply. Monday June 9 2010

    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.

    Yes, I plugged in an ethernet cable and get 58 max ... still not 70.   Is it ILOX modem problem then ?

    What model TPLink do you have ? I found this on Amazon (USA) for $64

    TP-Link AC1750 Smart WiFi Router - Dual Band Gigabit Wireless Internet Router for Home, Works with Alexa, VPN Server, Parental Control&QoS (Archer A7)


    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/

    We've tried a wireless range extender with no luck , so I want to run a 30 meter ethernet cable to the remote area and then have a device which broadcasts wifi from there.  What kind of device is available locally or Mercadolibre ? Thanks

    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.

    Thanks for all the advice. Yes, we are trying to use wifi from their modem.

    Looks like a router is the way to go. I am just not familiar with installation of it. Where do I buy a ASUS router and how is it installed, please ?

    Thanks again for the advice. If this will greatly increase the wifi we can finally start thinking of getting Wifi TV

    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.

    Where can I buy lakeside a router to work with my WiFi on Ilox modem...

    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.
