Life without wifi

Last Friday while I was at work in the evening, there was thundering. I feared such loud thundering as I had experienced many times whereby my tv, desktop, modems and phones got struck by lightnings.

Upon the first thunder, I quickly called my girl to pull off the modem wire but I guess I was too late. A loud thunder struck again. I had foreseen the worst.
 
When I reached home after work at 10pm, my girl shouted that the line was dead. I knew it! But I was alright as I could pay for my maxis mobile internet. I had to pay RM2 daily until today.

I called 100. TM answered and the telephonist told me that he would send my report as soon as possible. Our phone line was dead and was not restored even after a day. I call TM again. This time I was told that my area cable was destructed and time was needed to get them sorted out. I had to give them time till yesterday.

Yet yesterday my phone line was still dead. Impatiently I called TM for the third time. I insisted that the technician to work on the problem speedily. I had to wait for a few days, I was told to be patient.

When I got back home for a break in the evening yesterday, two TM guys appeared at my door. One of them checked my connection items and he found out that my modem wire, the splitter and my phone were gone for good.

Finally all were restored and we are back to wifi. My girl was so relieved as finally she could finish up her assignment.

Thanks TM!

  1. I think there's something called a router to protect your modem and all in case there's a thunderstorm or lightning.. It controls and monitor the surge or something.. My dad's using Belkin.. Oohhh I can live without wifi too, coz we have wifi in the office, then I use data at home..

  10. Good that finally you get wifi back after so many days. Your daughter must be so glad. We use a surge protector for important devices and a UPS in case no electricity.

  12. Understand your frustration. Glad everything restored.

    Good practice to switch off and unplug all electrical items during heavy rain. I do it too.
