UniFi Phone Call Forwarding

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

If you’re here to look for the way to forward the phone that comes to UniFi to another phone number, I apologize. I don’t know how. I tried asking TM call center but they told me to call UniFi support for UniFi phone. For the record every time I try *61*XXXXXXXXXX# the automated voice response […]

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

If you are a UniFi subscriber, and live in the Puchong (plus Damansara reported by achmatibrahim via Twitter) area you might have already been aware of the downtime since yesterday afternoon (8 December 2010). At the moment I am writing this post, it has been more than 12 hours. TM is not actively informing users […]

Celcom Broadband What Is Wrong With You?

Wednesday, May 13th, 2009

In search for Internet connection for my new home (since it would take a while before fixed line or ADSL will be available), I am considering the 2 largest wireless telco in Malaysia – Celcom and Maxis. They both have wireless broadband packages, and they both have more or less the same overall reviews from […]

What Happened to My Upload Speed?

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

For quite some time I have been working from home with no difficulties, and I am happy with the speed. Sometimes I even have 3 or 4 terminal service windows open, juggling between them to complete my tasks. However this morning when I tried to utilize my Nortel IP Softphone 2050 to call my boss […]

Weird IP Mismatch on TMNET Network

Thursday, November 20th, 2008

Tonight’s Internet access was annoyingly slow so I thought of recycling my ADSL connection. Out of habit I opened up and was presented with a weird IP. The top text with black background is the actual IP my router was assigned with ( And then I recycled my ADSL connection. The new IP was […]

TMNet New IP Block 124?

Sunday, May 11th, 2008

3 days ago I was alerted by my DNS-O-Matic script that my IP has changed. Usually I don’t care much because the script will do its job in updating my dynamic IP. One interesting thing is that I usually get IPs beginning with 60 but now I am receiving IP beginning with 124. I am […]

TMNet Decides to Block Port 25

Tuesday, December 4th, 2007

If you’re a Streamyx subscriber and is actively monitoring your Streamyx email you would already be aware that TM is blocking all outgoing connections to port 25 from the dynamic IP users. Simply put, home users with dynamic IP will not be able to use their email clients (i.e. Thunderbird, Outlook, Eudora, Kmail) to send […]

Slow Streamyx

Thursday, June 21st, 2007

For quite some time Streamyx has been quite stable for me, no complaints. However starting from a few days ago it has become really painful to access the Internet, and to even access my own blog. I guess the problem is with international connections again as accessing a local server hosted in Netmyne is not […]

4.0Mbps Streamyx?

Monday, May 21st, 2007

I was browsing through some blogs when I found myself on this particular post in doBot’s blog. Here’s the official announcement. Familiar Malaysian forums have been discussing this for a while, and as usual I’m left behind again. Some of them mentioned that the 4Mbps is nothing if TMNet still decides to limit/throttle traffic especially […]

Down Again

Tuesday, January 9th, 2007

Looks like my excitement this morning was short-lived. The connection is down again. Received a call from TMNET and they asked me to check my connection when I return home. If the connection is still not OK they suggested I wait for tomorrow morning. I immediately jumped at the caller and said “tomorrow??? tomorrow???”. And […]

Tuesday, January 9th, 2007

I lost my Internet connection at about 6.00pm local time yesterday, and according to my logs Internet was restored at about 2.30am today. This morning I tried to ping some sites and the speed is good. Has the submarine cable been fixed already? -(~/:#)-> ping PING ( 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes […]

Internet Slowness

Wednesday, December 27th, 2006

I am experiencing Internet slowness again. Can’t even upload any image to my blog server. This post was made after the 5th attempt. 🙁 Update 27-Dec-2006: It turns out that an international link is down due to earthquake in Taiwan. Undersea cables are broken. Learned it the hard way at the office as global functions […]

Zainab, who has been with […]

Traffic Shaping According to Time Of Day?

Thursday, October 26th, 2006

Looking at my traffic graph generated from the router, I can see that my traffic increases at night and gradually slows down right after 0800. Traffic remains slow until going up again at about 2300. Interesting. Is TMNET implementing traffic shaping based on hours of the day? Anyway the traffic at night hovers around 10kB/s […]
