Taking off the G shackle

Finally I'm replacing my trusty router,the Aztech 605EW [Dual Antenna,rare version].Bought it since I was form 2,it had been a helpful hand in fulfilling my massive download habit.So far,it would have clocked up to more than 10TB of downloads,I conjecture.Proudly saying that even till present,it hasn't failed to work but started to show some signs of deficiency like frequent hangs and some volatility in DSL signal.So far,it hasn't given me any abrupt protest from keeping me online.

Till yesterday things started to woe and it hanged for thrice for the day,so I punched in 100 and thought it was something to do with TM.But surprisingly,after some degree of diagnose done by the technicians when they came to my doorstep.It was found that the culprit for the frequent disconnections was the router itself,I couldn't help but to concede to the fact.To be fair,it wasn't all the time internet slowdown owes to TM,but TM has a certain negative notion to make people think of it.We all know.

This time I have done things smarter than before,other than having a modem router which is a 3in1 setup,I decided to have 2 devices,the Wireless N router and ADSL router itself for better bandwidth rationalization between local and WAN outflows.The major purpose is to offload the need to process everything in a single chip,theoretically things may be faster.

TP-Link offers the best bargained Wireless-N router and 2 years warranty for only at a dirt cheap price of RM49.Bet you couldn't really find any other Wireless N router cheaper that this.The reason I opted for a separated setup is also to make way for the upcoming Unifi(Which we do not know how they termed'upcoming' in their timeline) so that I can reuse this as a repeater or as an additional access point.

This afternoon had been a tedious one,initially I bought a wired broadband router switch which I mistakenly foreseen it as a modem router.So we had to make our way back to Lowyat Plaza and had the router exchanged for the right one.It was a painstaking course because we took 3 hours for the journey and everything needed to queue before things got back on the right track.

Good thing is now our home is officially supporting Wireless N format and HD Video Streaming is now possible without the need to have files copied on external HDD.Wifi throughput has been extended and local bandwidth is so much given a robust upgrade.I'm so happy 

Dropped by at the Korean Village for some grocery shopping.Bought some korean soda milk to try out,will update everyone once I've tried it :)
