  1. TM30 Experience

    Wrong. I renewed my annual extension of stay without presenting a TM30.
  2. Too many black/brown outs

    I live in Maejo. Within the last year surges and spikes in electrical voltage have fried the control/logic boards in my washing machine, a room air con (& fried the unit's fan motor), and last week, the oven clock/timer. After the washing machine circuit board was replaced, we now unplug our washer & dryer when not in use. After the air con repair, we now keep the circuit breakers for all our air cons & hot water heaters off when not in use. The oven is on a circuit shared with other outlets and I'm planning to have that re-wired to its own dedicated circuit breaker so I can turn the breaker off when not in use. Remember- electronic devices and appliances always are receiving electricity and risk of damage when not in use. For all of our electronics and other appliances I bought high quality surge protectors from Lazada for all of the electrical outlets theses are connected to. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  3. Recommend a good provider of Internet in CNX

    I used True for 4 years as well. But their product is overpriced compared to 3BB and with 3BB I get fiber optic technology and True was only coax cable. Performance overall is much better and at less cost. In fact I dumped True Visions at the same time and now just stream my TV content and no longer pay True 2500+ per month for content that just kept getting worse and worse and more expensive (I.e., loss of HBO, etc)
  4. Recommend a good provider of Internet in CNX

    Yes. Speeds will get much slower once your traffic goes overseas thru Thailand's single gateway. I'm able to stream television shows here from the US using a VPN and so far I've rarely experienced any freezing, slowing or buffering.
  5. Recommend a good provider of Internet in CNX

    I would say yes. Just look at their website and you'll see their packages
  6. Recommend a good provider of Internet in CNX

    3BB hands down. I quit True where I was paying 800/mo for 50/5, and now pay only 963 (incl vat) per month for 150/50 speeds. Here's a speed test I just did.
  7. Index Living Mall Kitchens in Chiang Mai

    Absolutely.
  8. Index Living Mall Kitchens in Chiang Mai

    I also had Homikitch quote us prices for our kitchen. They were 25% more expensive than IKEAs prices and for pressed board materials way overpriced in my view
  9. Index Living Mall Kitchens in Chiang Mai

    When we were building our home in Maejo 4 years ago, we went to Ikea in Bangkok and had them design/quote cabinets for our kitchen. Shipping to Chiangmai was an extra, and installation was to be accomplished by their personnel/contractor who would travel from Bangkok to your home to install- crew travel, lodging & labor was at the buyer's expense. While the Ikea cabinetry was less expensive than one of the major cabinetry companies here in CM, we found a factory in Ban Tawai who for half the price of the Ikea cabinets designed, built, installed and serviced our kitchen cabinets made from solid teak. We liked their work so much we later had them design and build other cabinetry in our home, our dining table, pool deck furniture, bedroom and bathroom furniture and cabinets, etc.
  10. Remember. The speeds your internet provider advertises are limited to the expected performance within Thailand. Accessing sites outside Thailand results in a drop in the speed when uploading or downloading thru the small Thailand international gateway Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  11. 90 Day online back up again.

    Huh? The link sends to a Facebook page. Cutting & pasting the URL returns a Not Found result Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  12. Need Router with built-in VPN client

    I have Tunnel Bear as my current VPN provider but theirs doesn't work on routers. After further research today and consultation with a friend of mine who is an expert, I'm not going to pursue this any further. Thanks for everyone's feedback. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect

  14. I need to buy a router with built-in VPN client to add to my existing 3BB dual band router wi-fi network. Does anyone have any experience/knowledge of the specific router I seek and where to buy in Chiang Mai (or Thailand)? Thanks.
