  1. Because it's the law. Please read the first post in this thread by Bisbee Gal quoting Sonia Diaz and the post by AlanMexicali. You must get your FMM marked CANJE by immigration or all your work will be for naught. If you do not then get a 30 day TIP to correspond to your 30 day CANJE then your TIP will be invalid and you will have to contact someone like Spencer McMulllen (Intercasa on this board) to straighten the situation out.
  2. You can buy propafenona (propafenone/rythmol) at any farmacia without a prescription, if that works for you.
  3. Not looking for a diagnosis here, just looking for a recommendation for someone who can diagnose it for me.
  4. I have an old pool with some blotchy discoloration on the floor tiles. My pool guy has cleaned what was a green/blue stain down to a light gray discoloration which either does not come off or immediately returns. I need someone knowledgeable enough to tell me if it can be cleaned, killed or if it is some sort of permanent etching damage. Thanks.
  5. Used to be the lawyers office on the corner of Galeana. Simultaneous post.
  6. Ok I went by Steren and told them what I was looking for and he showed me a Steren brand that he said was the same (he didn't try to upsell me the more expensive model which I appreciated). After I installed it I'm getting 30 t0 40 megs in the back room and 45 plus in the front rooms, which is good enough for me. Now to see how reliable it is.
  7. Bedbug, I stayed at a rental that had a Google mesh system and it dropped out frequently and I ended up connecting directly to the modem wifi (it's possible that not turning off the modem wifi caused interference). Do you recommend a particular brand?
  8. CG I probably didn't state my observation regarding the wireless properties completely. The n enable button wasn't greyed out, but there was a disable button there and that along with what Task Manager reports makes me think it is connecting on n ( I hadn't had my coffee yet when I wrote that). On another subject the Ilox techs recommended an ASUS AC 1300 router as the best. Amazon has it but Steren's site doesn't. Do you or anyone else have a router recommendation?
  9. Ok, I got into the modem page and it shows my optical level at -17.xx dbm. With ethernet connection I got a fairly steady 65 + megs at the modem. I tested repeatedly over several test sites ,Fast, Ookla, ATT , couple of others, all about the same except Speedof.me which was around 30. I test around 45 megs 6 feet away on wifi. If we connect 2 laptops that drops significantly. If we have one laptop on wifi and the other on ethernet the ethernet reading stays in the 60's, the wifi reading is pretty low.
  10. CG, yes that is the modem and they just brought it. When I reported that the properties of the wireless adaptor highlighted 802.11 a/b/c apparently that is the first item at the top of the grid and is always highlighted when you open it up; I attempted to select 802.11n but there was no enable button, so I checked task manager and it indicates I am using n, so I assume I am. I am going to try to log in to the modem address today and check the receive level nos. as Tom suggested above. I tried yesterday but I couldn't even find the Ilox connection so I will have to move my computer to the same room. I have no problem improving wifi capability if that's the problem. My concern is that when we held a laptop next to the modem the nos. were good, when we moved it a meter or so away they dropped drastically. Another concern is that my TelMex nos. bounce around all the time, but I've never seen activity like this, they change every second sometimes dropping from 60mbs to 0. I am also going to hook up the ethernet cable and verify the speed at the modem again. Does anyone know of a speed test that runs longer than a few seconds? I want to add that I have no complaints against Ilox personnel, they have all been very friendly and professional and responsive. They assure me that they will take care of any issues, and I believe them, it just may take a little time if a router doesn't solve the problem.
  11. CG the modem is a GPON ONO FiberHome model AN5506-04-GG My wireless device is currently highlighting 802.11 a/b/g with a value of 802.11 a/b/g. I can also select 802.11 n/ac Is there a place on the modem where I can look up the standard or do I need to log in to the modem's IP?
  12. Ilox installers showed up today and installed our service. We signed up for the Triple 50 package at the outset even though we didn't need tv or phone because that seemed the fastest way to get them here, and that apparently caused a small scheduling problem because they would schedule us for an install and then not come out because "there was no tv" and we would tell them we don't want tv and we don't need a refund and they would reschedule us and then not come out because "there was no tv". This happened 5 times and I then contacted Tom Kessler and they showed up the next day. This is something some of you may want to watch out for. The install took about an hour and a half and they showed us 62 megs on a speed test. As soon as they left the speed started bouncing around from 60 to 0. We contacted the office and the techs came back and worked on it using an ethernet cable and a phone seemed to get the modem at a solid 65-70, but the wifi still sucked. They recommended getting a router and I have no problem doing that if it solves the problem. They said they guaranteed between 65 and 70, anything close to that would be ok with me after TelMex's 3.5. The modem they supplied was the larger black one.
  13. I have added USTVNow to Firestick. I did it a few years ago so I don't remember the details but I followed the instructions at one of the many Kodi sites and it was relatively easy and it works fine. You will have to "sideload" Kodi to Firestick using ES File Explorer or something similar. The Kodi addon is not supported directly by USTVNow but by USTVNowPlus, but any issues I have had have been caused by and resolved by USTVNow through my account with them. You will need an account directly with USTVNow and as of the time I installed it, you had to have a paid account to extend to multiple devices.
