router and modem for streamyx at one of my site is down because of lightning strike. bloody take out my graphic card too (i dunno lol why). my setup is protected by cal-lab sf9512-dsl lightning arrestor but the rj11 port is busted because of lightning strike before and i forgot to claim the lifetime warranty from cal-lab bandar utama (just pay RM25 + GST) to get a new one. cool, right? so, i just bypass for a while and end up with a fried electronics.

i look around at online mall and found a second hand modem/router AIO. dude offer me RM30, so i just take it. it’s tp-link td-w8901n (with ipv6 support). pics as below

then, i went to cal-lab bandar utama and change my sf9512-dsl to a refurbished unit.
