Does anybody know of the availability of TMnet Streamyx in USJ 3A, 3B, 3C, or 3D?

Rootlinux, there are no tel lines over there. Heard Telekom wud only provide wireless telephone and therefore no streamyx only dialup possible. But the problem is they don't hv the wireless phone set. Therefore you can't have the tel line. That's tricky.... Hope Jaring would be launching soon their so called SOMA Wireless Broadband with voice line...& cover USJ3A,B,C,D etc...

So, you lived in USJ 3A? Have you tried to apply for the Jaring broadband? I hear from a friend...there is a transmition station in Summit USJ.

Hi Peter/rootlinux,

I have just applied for Jaring Wireless 2 days ago. In fact, went to collect the SOMA wireless port yesterday at Anjung Internet at Mimos, TPM.

REgistration online is available at www.jaring.my. Wait for 2 days, bring your i/c and your utility bill (TNB or PUAS will do). And bring your credit card.

Registration time is around 1/2 hour, and you need to sign D/O for the SOMA box, Terms and Conditions (also available online, so read before you go, so that you don't waste time reading like me). Jaring is pretty serious about how you are using the service, therefore, they are keeping records and T&Cs with all those who sign to ensure proper regulation.

When I was there last nite around 4.30pm, there were 3 open counters, and 4 pple applying for the same thing. I guess this service is pretty hot.

I went for home basic package. Cost RM100/month. Details are in jaring website. I went for the 12 month package, and saved 2 months.
Basically, they give me one phone line (+6015 xxxx-xxxx) which I have no liberty to choose and one ethernet port ready for use.
They will ask you what is your favorite hobby for future security authentication. Please think of one.

The SOMA original box with accessories is as big as a Toolbox (maybe bigger). But the actual SOMA unit is about 2 x normal external modem size. It is placed upright.
It has a "status" and a "network" LED. At the back, it has one ethernet port, two phone jacks (the phone 2 jack is for the additional line you can subscribe for additional phone/fax and you have to pay additional RM25/mth). It also has a power line-in. That's all.

Very simple to set up. Took me only 10 mins.

This is how you do it :
Connect everything according to the manual.
Last thing to connect is your notebook/PC thru an ethernet cable to SOMA box. Boot up your notebook/PC. Launch internet explorer. It will automatically take you to the Jaring Self Care portal. Please log in using the username/password you declare during registration.
Follow the menu, and at the last page, after you confirm activation of SOMA port, your phone number of 015-xxxx-xxxx will be displayed to you, and you will be able to surf and connect a phone to use the port.

Please note that current situation only allow outbound calls from SOMA unit. Therefore your security system in your house can make outbound calls.

Jaring is currently in the process of tying up with other telcos to enable inbound calls to be made into the SOMA port.

In other words, when you subscribe to Jaring wireless now, your unit will be able to call out, and if you are calling your handphone, your handphone will register a 03-899x-xxxx (indicating a TPM number). If you call back this number, you will reach Mimos.

If you use your handphone to call your 015-xxxx-xxxx number, you will receive a no service message.

While I am writing this, I am connected to Jaring Wireless Broadband service using the SOMA port, and my current location is at Jalan USJ 3A/11. I am placing this box on my downstairs staircase, and my house direction is such that is it having maximum wall blockage from Summit. (Yes, it is confirmed that the transmitting tower is at Summit rooftop, and it can transmit up to 5km radius).

I have no time to do a speed test, but I have been a streamyx user (384k upgraded to 512k) for more than a year now. I have no complaints about Jaring Wireless @ 512k.

Feel good. Cheers.

I subscribed Jaring Wireless Broadband on 25/12/04 but have no time to really test the connection. But I noticed connection occasionally went off line. Other than that no complaints so far. I'm staying in USJ3A/8.
