    RAIN LTE-A: Speedtests

    Just had a call from a friend saying they took their Rain 5G router on holiday with them and it doesn't work since there is no 5G tower in the area. Another family member has taken their old Huawei B315 with a 4G sim on holiday to the same resort with them and it works lekker. Is there really no...

    [RELEASE] DStv Now KODI Add-on

    Having troubles. Kodi 18.9 with DSTV kodi addon. The 1080p catch up content works fine. However, the live streaming is stuttering and buffering.

    Cool Ideas Fibre ISP – Feedback Thread 4

    Yeah thanks it came around. I was unable to run the site to do the IP update - was a bit confused. First removed the proxy on the router level, rebooted and then activated it again. So all is well. Happy to have more than doubled speeds. Keep doing the good work Cool Ideas!

    Cool Ideas Fibre ISP – Feedback Thread 4

    My speed has been upgraded by Openserve. Overjoyed. The weird part is that my SmartDNSproxy doesn't seem to be functioning since the speed upgrade. Any ideas as to why that could be?

    Cool Ideas Fibre ISP – Feedback Thread 4

    So since 01:15 my and my neighbor's (who is also on Cool Ideas) connection was down. Can Cool Ideas please get in touch with Openserve and ask them what they are doing in the midnight hours around the Menlyn region. Fibre is down for a couple of minutes almost every evening. It's now 01:24 and...

    Cool Ideas Fibre ISP – Feedback Thread 4

    So a week later. When the clock strikes 00:00, service is down for about 14 minutes. Pretty much identical to last week at the exact same time. Is it an Openserve issue or do you guys do some sort of maintenance at midnight at Cool Ideas?

    Cool Ideas Fibre ISP – Feedback Thread 4

    Hmm. Rare outage in Pretoria East Openserve. Any idea what the problem is? Edit: Service is back. False alarm. Cool Ideas still peachy. Edit: Down again. Edit: Back again. And I know it isn't just me. My neighbor has Cool Ideas too and he was also down.

    Router Battery Backup

    I powered both the Archer (9V) and my Huawei ONT (12v) with a splitter on just the battery - with the switcher set to 9v - for a couple of minutes. So it is possible to use one Gizzu. I hear that it will continue powering the routers for four hours of loadshedding maximum.

    Router Battery Backup

    So I have set the Gizzu up. I used the switcher on the DC output, set it to 9V, used the splitter plus the extension cable and it is powering both the Archer and the Huawei ONT (despite the ONT being 12v). My last noob-ish question for everyone who uses these UPSs like the Gizzu is: Do I power...

    Router Battery Backup

    Ok guys. A bit of a noob when it comes to this stuff. Is someone able to confirm if a Gizzu (specifically this 36W one https://www.takealot.com/gizzu-8800mah-mini-dc-poe-ups-black/PLID71034021) will work for a: TP-Link Archer C20 AC750 Wireless Dual Band Router (9V; 0.6A) Huawei ONT (12V...

    [RELEASE] DStv Now KODI Add-on

    Having troubles today. Channels load, qualities load, but then the channels don't play. It may be an issue with my SmartDNS being banned (perhaps). In general, when I click on a channel it first gives a timeout message - but when I click again it loads the different quality preferences. Anyone...
