2018 is the year where things change. We will expand the brand to encompass more tech.

  1. Hi Alvyn,
    I find your website very useful and would like to reach out to you for a collaboration idea. Can we take this conversation via email, over the phone or even in person perhaps? Do let me know. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.


  2. Hi Alvyn,

    Would you by any chance know of anyone who assist to setup/install router? Have issues setting up Lyra Trio. Managed to get 1 node to work but one node now has gone into rescue mode and cant get the other node to pair. Rather get a pro-in to set it up fully along with VPN and Qos. Any recommendation would be appreciated.

  3. Hi Sifoo Alvyn

    Need opinion to set up wireless network to full cover 3 storey semi D ( 4000 + sqft – 60% house using glass for wall ) .Suggestion & advise for hardware ( router / AP /extender )& diagram LAN cable for every floor? Package 500mbps Unifi.Thanks

  4. I have unifi turbo 500gb now and planning to get Deco M9 plus.
    what is the wifi speed range i can expect around the house for phone and HP laptop?


  5. Hi, I would like to make a suggestion that will be an improvement for the router test results. PPPoE WAN speed test results. I mean use your own PPPoE server and then test the router throughput through the PPPoE connection. You can’t find such info on the web reviews & even if it did include it, that is usually just simply the result of the reviewer testing on their own broadband & speed limited by their broadband package. Most of the time you can only get a hint of the actual performance reported by the actual users with varying accuracy. If you can provide this test results, it will be far more useful for us as almost all the home broadband ISP in Malaysia use PPPoE unlike in some other countries.

    You can use linux/freebsd or even mikrotik VM to do it, just make sure the NIC is not the bottleneck especially if you run it on VM. Some router simply cannot meet their advertised 1 Gbit WAN to LAN speed when PPPoE + VLAN is involved.

    1. I actually manage to simulate a TM environment with VLAN and PPPOE but I decided that it is too technical for the consumption of most readers. Thanks for the suggestion anyway.

      I am getting a 1Gbps internet connection and will be able to perform more accurate test soon.
