Wireless in BKK

I managed to setup the wireless router at my friend, Chat’s house yesterday. So my wife was surfing happily. I did surf a while until sleep bug bites me. It was quite tiring as I need to walk across the road, set it up, goes back to my house, test it out at the first floor. Then walk 3 flights of stairs then test it at the master bedroom. It was fun though, the joy of seeing the wireless signals lighting up.

Initially we were quite skeptical if the signal can really reach the house as it needs to travel across the street, passing my friend Toyota Hilux which is a tall car which could actually block an elephant if it’s needed, hahaha just joking. So when we went to the mall, we did not go to Panthip as it was quite far and I was still feeling a bit sick (feverish). Hence we went to the nearest mall instead. We were shown with 2 brands and multiple models to pick from.

First there is the Belkin model which could actually transmit up to 900 meters. Believe it or not but of course the price is approximately Rm890. The next available model or shall I say cheaper model could transmit up to 200 meters and it cost around Rm450. We then look at the D link models. There is one which could transmit up to 200 meters which cost around Rm420 and another Rm390 which could transmit up to 300 meters. The curious thing is that the model that transmits less is more expensive.

After comparing the features, it seems it’s a 104mbps model hence the word extreme is part of the model name. Anyway we are just looking for a model that is cheap and can be use, hence we finally bought the model DSL-G604T and I am now using it, in my bedroom on the 3rd floor…
