Weekend project (remote car)

sup

get this remote car for free a while ago. my kid stop playing with it when he’s around 4. when his brother turned 1, i was thinking of cleaning it and power it up. unfortunately, there is some problem with it.

open it up and see whats wrong with it.

looks like some electronics parts burned and flat battery. went to jalan pasar and bought some parts and new battery. i choose a bigger amp battery than the old one. put it all together and test it out. yep, working. maybe after this, change to a better motor?

the old remote control also busted. luckily i have some spare control. i adjust the frequency to match the remote car, then all is working fine.

that is all.

Streamyx IPv6 and TP-Link TD-W8901N

lol.

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.

setting up streamyx connection is not that hard. provided we have all the information beforehand. since i already forgot most of the settings and i heard streamyx now support ipv6, i tried google around for some tutorial. very few info and none of them have settings for ipv6.

so, if any of you use tp-link with streamyx, click continue reading for some info on how to set up your streamyx.

Proton Iriz first service (1000km)

my first car was a proton. proton wira. damn good car that is. accident a couple of times, but nothing major though. sold that car and upgraded to a conti.

anyways, one day i was thinking of getting a second car. just for going to work or jalan-jalan around town. walk into a proton showroom and after looking around, sign the booking form for proton iriz. initially i want to buy proton persona but after sitting in, test here and there, i settled for iriz.

long story short, it was time for 1000km first service. search around the internet for some information but cannot find jack shit. i have some spare time and so i post this small information for any iriz owners out there who were wondering about the item and costs for the service.
