  1. This is quite the thread...leaving me a little bit confused as I try to sort out the protocol before leaving MX in a couple weeks for a quick trip up to the states. Is the information above still current, or have changes taken place since 2017?
  2. Does anyone know if the Pase Turistico is necessary for travel to the State of Mexico? I am driving a rental car (2013) with Oaxaca plates from Ajijic to just west of Toluca.
  3. Taking a look at the Walgreens site and scanning for appointments, the site reports no appointments available for Pfizer or Moderna within 25 miles of Chula Vista, CA.
  4. Did you need to make your appointment ahead of time?
  5. I've rented from Margaret and would recommend. Good experience and price.
  6. Anyone have a particular car rental place at the airport that they'd recommend? A couple times in the states recently, I have reserved a car at an airport only to arrive and not have a vehicle available. Curious if this happens at the GDL airport as well. In mid January, I have a retreat just west of Toluca that I am planning to attend and I do not need a large car. I'll be driving to the retreat center and then the car will not be used until I drive back to Chapala on the 24th. I've written several of the local folks (renting locally at lakeside would be my preference) that I could I find contact information, but several that have replied don't have a car during that time or haven't replied. Thanks in Advance.
  7. Just a follow up here. The mesh unit is working well. We do lose quite a bit of speed up on the second floor unit which has the mesh receiver, but it is still good and extends to the whole second floor.
  8. I am looking for referrals for a local engineer/architect that could possibly solve some street sound issues as well as lighting in my home in the village. Thanks in advance.
  9. I just messaged TPs tech support and have someone coming out on Tuesday with the Mesh unit. It is 50 pesos/month at the 100mbs service level. Thanks again @GDouglas - looking forward to some great WiFi in my upstairs
  10. @GDouglas TotalPlay has the mesh included at 200Mbs on their website. I wonder if it used to be included at the 100Mbs plan?
  11. Thanks for your thoughts on this @GDouglas, @RickS and @oregontochapala I didn't know that TotalPlay would give out a mesh wifi repeater.. That is pretty great of them. I have the 100mb plan...so will chat with them on that. I found a viga bay (between two I beams) directly above the TotalPlay router that is getting nearly top speed. If I can put the mesh unit nearly directly above - and it can broadcast similarly to the router, I think the signal upstairs would be quite excellent. Thanks folks!
  12. Can you recommend a big-antenna router? WiFi signal is quite weak going up to the second floor in my house. I'd rather not run a line along the wall and drill through the ceiling to put a separate router up in the second floor if I can avoid it. Thanks!
  13. I had TotalPlay installed about 3 weeks ago. Great process. Contacted the number on the back of the flyer on a Thursday, WhatsApp'd with that person a bit to answer my questions. Friday, main office called and set up the installation appoint. Saturday, it was installed. Monday, gave iLox back their modem and ended service with them. The service has been solid, it is always on, no cut-outs. I can know have a voice call through WhatsApp, FB, Hangouts, etc, and hear things nice and clear and the signal doesn't drop 5-10 times per hour. Thank you to those who have posted their experience and process
  14. I am looking for a recommendation on either a WiFi extender or mesh system to get great WiFi signal across a couple floors and through the walls. Anybody have a good experience with something they can recommend? Thanks in advance
