CYBERJAYA: Internet service provider TM Net Sdn Bhd has launched its “streamyx hotspot@home” broadband kit that includes a wireless access point with router and an ADSL modem.
The kit lets users connect to the Internet wirelessly without the need for local area network (LAN) wiring.
Users can also create a home network, although each computer on the network will require a WiFi access card. The wireless access point has a range of 200m outdoors and 100m indoors, TM Net said.
The do-it-yourself hotspot@home kit comes with the wireless access point, WiFi card, tmnet hotspot prepaid card worth RM19, user manual, set-up CD, RJ-45 and RJ-11 cables, splitter and an AC power supply adaptor.

I am confused.
Is it “Streamyx ADSL to WiFi”? If it is, why tmnet hotspot prepaid card is included in the kit? “It is Free gift”, you might say.
If it is “Streamyx ADSL to WiFi”, you can do-it-yourselves with a wifi router(RM200-RM300) and a PCMCIA WiFi adapter(RM70).
The hotspot@home kit is currently selling for RM299, which is a discount from the regular RM621 retail price. The offer expires on July 31, TM Net said.
RM621 is definately over-priced.
I don’t know what product brand Tmnet used in the wireless kit, but we are getting “Made in China” ADSL modem when subscribe to Streamyx.
