    upgrading works are done during early morning.

    are you using splitter? i took away the splitter and the speed is fantastic now. Also get timing out previously.

    Starhub claims it may be a problem with the boosters in my house but I somehow think it may have to do with the speed upgrade.

    I've removed all splitters in my house and tried again.

    Still the same timed-out problem. I can't even have a decent loading of any of the "Best of 2006" pages.

    Haiz.. send an email to SH liaoz.

    My MOL4000 is ridiculous to the point it keeps disconnecting.

    The cable guy dropped by earlier and swapped out my Terayon (which seems to be the butt of problems) with a refurbished Motorola SB5100 Surfboard modem. No warranty & no charge it seems.

    So far so good. And I'm not complaining.

    Hmm..... testing the 'new' modem now. So far so good.

    For those who still own the old Terayon modem, call up 1633 and inform them of the problem. They'll swap out ur old Terayon with a refurbished one (refurbished = no warranty).

    The problem seemed to have been solved, at least for me.

    I guess so. I remember seeing reports of Terayons going up in smoke (literally). But after so many years in use (6 or 7yrs), I guess its also time. Electronic equipment these days don't seem to last beyond 8yrs these days. After 6yrs, they start to get cranky.

    So guys, u roughly know how long ur stuff gets before the 'time-bomb' goes off. Start saving for the same stuff the moment u buy it (cable modems, computers, etc).
