  1. I signed up for Mercado Libre recently.  When I try to purchase with a credit card (USA) it rejects the card and sends me to a link where they want me to upload my Mexican voter ID (which I don't have of course).  Anyone else having this problem?

    Thanks in advance

     

  2. For all of you looking for IPTV services, please check your internet speed before you try out any providers.  If you have under 15mbps you're going to have a less than satisfying experience. Also, check your latency (or ping).  You want a number under 100ms (the lower the better).

    If you're eligible, consider signing up for ILOX.  I've been with them over a year and it's been a very good (not perfect) service.

    An interesting statistic I found, for those who 'have not completely lost their minds by now: as of today (4-3-2020),  .01 % of the people in Texas have the virus, or are recovered. Another statistic worth noting: as of today, .0003 % of Texans have died. These are totals since January, when the Trump Adm stopped flights from China.The MSM will NOT show you those stats, because some of you might realize they have been trying to destroy the US with their scare tactics. Does this mean this virus is not serious. No, but it needs to be put into perspective with reality.

    What percentage of Americans died on 9/11?   Was that "put into perspective with reality"?  

    "The MSM will NOT show you those stats, because some of you might realize they have been trying to destroy the US with their scare tactics."

    No, it's because nobody really gives a shit about Texas right now since they aren't at the epicenter of the problem.

    Actions matter.  Politicians talk and posture a lot.  There's no question he underestimated the problem, he's hardly alone in this.  What matters is the U.S. government on his watch responded quickly and to date the death rate from this virus is 1/18th that of the previous big virus outbreak for which the same government sat on its hands for over four long months in 2009 doing nothing.  Among other things you all seem to have selectively forgotten, this same government was roundly attacked by your partisans and your media for the early travel ban on China which proved to be a very correct move.

     

     

    Where do you get this nonsense?   The death rate from H1N1 ended up being .02%  Today we have 94,000 cases of COVID 19 with 1,435 deaths.  That's a death rate of 1.59%.   You should really consider taking a little timeout for the sake of the board as it seems you are just posting propaganda.

    Please stop spreading lies.  It makes you look even worse.  Obama declared a public health emergency when there were 20 cases of H1N1.

    100% correct, because their hatred of Trump is only exceeded by their fear of being wrong. Thus, they can never admit they are incorrect. They are always correct. Sadly, they will take that to their grave, either here or elsewhere.

     

    And as they're on their way to their graves due to a lack of ventilators, may they see the light and realize that you and MC and all of the other geniuses were right all along.  It's just sad that due to an incompetent administration that they won't be able to be revived in order the spread the glad tidings.  Speaking of geniuses...............

  7. Is anyone else having problems with their Ilox connection.  I'm hardwired into my modem and am showing severe packet loss, especially at the TV Rey server.  If anyone else is having problems I'll assume they're doing maintenance on the servers.  Otherwise, I guess it's time to call tech support.   Here's my trace route info.  https://share.pingplotter.com/dSbRRppefHC

    P.S.  And yes, I've done a hard reset on the modem.

    I am scheduled for an ILox internet hookup and want to make sure that I make a good decision regarding a local TV streaming service. I know that this is an evolving and somewhat murky situation but would like to hear comments (the good, the bad and the ugly) of those who have had first hand experience, and in particular with an ILox fiber optic internet connection. Gracias 

    The major legal IPTV services are AT&T Now, Hulu Live TV, YouTube TV, Sling TV, FuboTV and Sony Vue TV.  These will run you anywhere from $25 to $125 US per month.  Also, you will need a VPN to connect to US servers.

    Illegal IPTV runs anywhere from $5 to $20 per month if you set it up yourself.  There are hundreds to choose from.  Don't expect 100% reliability.  You get what you pay for.

    The easiest way to watch IPTV is through an android streaming box.  The Amazon Firestick 4K is a great choice for the money.  Do not buy a Roku box if you plan to use illegal IPTV.  

    You'll be able to stream just fine with an Ilox connection, provided your modem is close to your streaming device.  The best setup would be a wired ethernet connection.

    PM me if and I can give you the number of a friend who will set you up.

    Anyone using my free TV from firestick service needs to have a public i.p. from ilox. 

    Tom and the ilox staff have been most helpful in this matter, but important that my customers either get the installer to do it or email me and I will pass it onto the box at ilox.

    It works great with ilox and best of all no monthly fees for u.s. u.k. and Canadian network channels.

    Could you explain this in a little more detail.  I've noticed that with my IPTV services I have to be running a VPN or I can't connect to the IPTV servers.  Are these two things related?

    Let  me, as a non-techie - get this straight.  In order for us to get everything possible from the new ILox service, we need to buy a lot more gear - so you are telling us that the service doesn't really work the way Ilox installs it.  I think I'm a bit miffed!  Further and very clear explanations would be appreciated Tom and Dave!

    No, you don't have to buy "a lot more gear".  What people are saying is that the wifi signal strength of the Ilox modem is not very good.  If you are connecting through the ethernet port you will get the speeds advertised.  What I did to solve the wireless problem was to purchase a TP-Link Archer 9 router (about $85USD on Amazon).  Before I installed the router I was getting 45 - 50 mbps at my laptop which sits about 20 feet from the  Ilox modem.  After I installed the new router as a wireless access point and turned off the wireless in the Ilox modem, I am getting 90 - 95 mbps.   

    I would recommend Ilox very highly.  You can't beat $599p per month for 100mbps.  This is cheaper than most US providers.

    On the website you can find all the prices and info

    https://www.ilox.mx/iloxhogar/index.php/paquetes

    https://www.ilox.mx/iloxhogar/index.php/servicios/tv-digital

    Not sure what other info you can't find on the website?

    Those prices aren't accurate for our area.  When I signed up I wanted the 50/75 plan, but for the same price they're offering 75/100.  Meaning, if you pay with a credit card you get the higher speed for the same price.

    All Day, just to verify. You used PayPal with this service.  That may be worth a few pesos to be able to use a foreign credit card because some utilities don't accept the foreign credit cards.

    If  your asking me if I used PayPal (there's no question mark in your sentence), the answer is yes.

    I just tried using this service.  I registered (email and pick a password), then successfully paid my Telmex bill. The service is NOT free. They charged a small commission of $8 to handle the transaction, which is about what OXXO would charge. I also got a message that it would take 24 to 48 hours for the transaction to post. 

    You can also pay CFE and others. The program is smart. You enter a company name and your account number and it retrieves the amount you owe.

    Like I said, we don't have Telmex.  But I put 200p on my Telcel phone yesterday and there was no fee.  My PayPal showed a debit of 200p.

  14. For those who are interested, here's a site to to pay for your cellphone, telephone and CFE bills and other services.

    https://undostres.com.mx/?gclid=CjwKCAjwy7vlBRACEiwAZvdx9kO0182nrBflyHFkijeH1doHkfebxGMY8F0wzJZb0JqzXgLHB1SJNxoC_GoQAvD_BwE

    They don't seem to charge a commission for Telcel payments.  Our CFE bill is 46p (we have solar) and they charge a 6p commission.  I don't know if higher bills are charged higher commissions.  We don't have Telmex so I don't know if they charge a commission for that service.

    They link to PayPal and credit cards.

  15. Just a heads up.  There's a great new Cuban restaurant on Zaragoza just east of Danza del Sol (just east of restaurant Domenech).  Limited  menu but they do a great lechón with fried plantains and beans and rice for 150p.  Full bar.  Hours 5-9 Thursday through Sunday.

    I should clarify Tom's statement about Ubiquiti Unifi Access Points. These are in the category of "mesh" WiFi extenders, and are used in multiples (although Unifi APs can be bought individually). They utilize technology in the hardware and software that standard routers and extenders cannot. Right now, it is cheaper to buy on mercadolibre and Amazon Mexico than Amazon.com, when purchasing one at a time.

    In a mesh setup, one base unit would be connected to the Ilox/.TelMex modem, and the others would be plugged into electrical outlets throughout the house.

    There is a problem inherent to this discussion, however. Pretty much all modems like Ilox's and TelMex's include basic WiFi standard hardware, and there is no real way to sell a "weaker" version at that price point. And the specs for both Ilox's modems are the same as everyone elses, so the signal should be the same as any TelMex modem.

    I thought the whole point of a wifi access point was to disable the wifi on the supplied modem and use the stronger dual band system on the access point.
