This is an overhaul

A 5 year old laptop, the task sound so simple, “change the expired CMOS Battery”.. yet look the true stories behind it..

New router : TP-LINK AC1750 (C7) to replace aging router.

New router installation and setup. Setup is not as straightforward as i thought, unifi setup is failed even after double check with TM UNIFI the correct username and password.

Last resort, i call tp-link malaysia help center,¬† I need to set the iptv setting ( tick all options, set mode to “malaysia-unifi” and set igmp proxy from v2 to v3) before setup the internet using¬† “quick setup”…and Done, task completed.
