  1. @Oz Jon, I was informed today that Cootel was going to move tower locations (READ: already had moved), thus causing the signal to drop at the farm. We are talking a serious drop in signal, so much that they suggested we discontinue the service with them. My thread regarding our Cootel service. Fortunately, I had already begun to cover all my bases, by contacting the omnidirectional antenna manufacturer, via email, for price and availability on a yagi antenna offering similar specs (frequency range, impedance, etc.). And, I have been discussing with you, the possibly sending the signal from my apartment in the city, to the farm, as well. Anyway, below is the specs sheet for the omni, which I sent to him. He, quite obviously, did not read the subject line of the email, or the specs sheet, aside from the model number of the antenna. Here are a couple of the (several) PDFs he sent to me: TDJ-1900ACY7.pdf TDJ-1900SP10.pdf Keep in mind, I was quite clear in the frequency range I needed, which was stated in the subject line, as well as on the specs sheet.
  2. What I am talking about here is, do you ever experience pages taking a long time to load, or not loading at all? An example is clicking on a link, with the page showing that it is loading, but it doesn't? Sometimes, you may think it is your internet service provider, or other reasons concerning your internet connection. But, this may not always be the case. To see if it is your connection, the first thing I would try is using the CMD prompt and pinging Yahoo!'s servers. You can do this by clicking on Start, then typing "CMD". When that application shows, click on it. When it opens, at the prompt type the following: cd\ (This step is actually optional. It's just a habit I have gotten into over the years. You can go directly to the following, after opening the CMD application.) Type: ping /t then press Enter. The window should look like this, at this point: NOTE: Your computer will continue to ping the server until you close the window. If you do not see lines similar to above, but see something like "Request timed out." showing up in between those lines (or instead of those lines), it will be an issue with your LAN cable, your WiFi adapter, or possibly your ISP. If, however, the pings return solid results (like shown above), then you can look at your browser as the possible culprit. Requirement: Download other browsers, or at least one to use to perform the following test. Personally, I keep several different browsers on my computers. Chrome, Opera, Firefox, and Safari, are typical examples. Now, if you are fairly sure it isn't the internet connection, having performed the above test, you should try another browser. Open a second browser of your choice. See if the same links take as long to load, as they do when using your primary browser. If they load faster every time, it is probably an add-on, or some other change that has taken place with your primary browser. The easiest way to sort this, without taking time to disable every option in the browser, is to go into your browser settings and simply reset it to its original default condition. In Chrome, for example, click on the white arrow with green background, in top right corner of your browser. Then, scroll down and click on "Settings". Go to the bottom of your Settings page and click on "Advanced". Continue scrolling to the bottom of the Settings page. At the very bottom, in the "Reset and clean up" box, click on "Reset". When the following popup opens, click "Reset". All done. No need to even close your browser and open it again. See if those same links take as long to open. Hopefully, this has sorted your problems. If not, feel free to contact me and I will see if I can help sort it for you. Alternatively, you can shoot your computer. That, I assure you, will sort the issue.

    OPENNET Internet Service Provider

    I took some tests at SpeedTest.net, last night. UPDATED tests 12 / March / 14 - This time, with the boss actively using the internet as well. Ping rates to the states suck, though. For someone like an online investor, I think this wouldn't be quite as good? Just after 6pm local time, 14 / March / 2014. Between 3:45am and 4:00am, 15 / March / 2014.
  4. I just bought a Huawei mobile hotspot/wifi and love it. Just insert the Metfone sim (limited plan with dongle) card and it gives me internet for my computer and tablet. Its smaller than a pack of Cigs.
  5. From Phnom Penh Post Wednesday 26th June 2013 By Anne Renzenbrink and Daniel de Carteret Cambodia’s largest internet service provider Ezecom announced yesterday that it would help build the country’s first submarine communications cable, a move that should strengthen the company’s hold on the market and dramatically improve internet service at a lower cost.

  6. First, let me preface this post with a little information about Metfone. The dongle I have is a black one with white trim. The company also sells one that is white. The software that loads when you connect the white one will be different than the black one that I have. Anyway, onward. When you connect the dongle, the software will be loaded into your computer. The control panel will look like this: Click on "Menu". When the drop down menu opens, click on "USSD". The following window will open. You will have several options in the drop down menu, one of them being able to check the balance of your account: Another option will be to load credit on to the account: Follow the directions, inserting the card number to replace the default zeros in the sequence, and click "Okay" to load the card. After clicking "Okay" to check the balance of the account, a message will show in the upper window, telling you how many dollars and cents you have as your dollar balance. (This is NOT the same as your data balance. I will explain this more, later.) After the message shows in the upper window, you will see a popup on the bottom right side of your screen, as shown below: Afterward, click the "X" to close the request window, and the main view for the control panel will show again, automatically. Click on the "SMS" button - - and the following window will open, showing your new messages in blue. Highlight the most recent message and it will show in the lower side of that window. (If you cannot read it clearly enough, highlight the text and paste it into a word editor, or notepad, as I do.) I have been keeping a record of the credit on my MetFone USB Dongle, and how it has been used. Typically, if you are only browsing web pages and sending / receiving email, you will use very little of the allotted bandwidth each month. It is when you are downloading videos (YouTube, etc.) or when you are downloading torrent files, that you start hitting the bandwidth on the dongle. Do note that, when you first have the SIM card loaded, upon purchasing the SIM, dongle, and initial credit, you will see a message that reads something like the following, after checking your balance: "Name/Number: 1770 Time: 2012-07-17 20:18:10 Content: Hello!You have following free resource: 100 items free items for onnet sms, 307200 KB free data1, 2644614 KB free data2,Thank you." The amount of credit will vary, depending on what you have purchased. The above text was sent well after I had been using my internet. It should be over 4,000,000, if new. Now, how the dongle "uses" or "consumes" the credit you have on the SIM. The first credit it will use is the balance of "Data2". After "Data2" has been depleted, "Data1" will be consumed. After "Data1" has been depleted, the dongle will start consuming the credit from your USD balance. So, if you keep an eye on your balance, every once in awhile anyway, you will have enough time to buy another card to top up (reload) the credit on the dongle. Please note that you can also send and receive text / SMS messages through your Metfone USB Dongle. As you can see on the SMS I received, above, you are allowed 100 free text messages. Simply use it as you would any cell phone, when sending messages to any other domestic cell number.. I hope this has been a helpful tutorial for you. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to post them in this thread.

    Microsoft's Super WIFI

    Microsoft's Super WIFI Super Wi-Fi could change game From Phnom Penh Post Wednesday 20th June 2012 By Stuart Alan Becker technology called “Super Wi-Fi” that uses the frequency spectrum between television channels called “white spaces” could be a game-changing force in how people connect to the internet, especially in places like Cambodia. The technology, which requires specialised equipment costing about US$2,000 for a base station would enable a fibre-optic line to connect with an antenna and create internet connectivity for users to connect wirelessly up to 20 kilometres away.
