Solve Unstable Streamyx Connection Using TM Proxy Server

Some people may be experiencing major broadband issues with Streamyx lately. This is due to problems with some submarine cable affecting the network between Malaysia to Europe and US. Repair works have begun and is due to complete on 2 May 2010.

This problem has been affecting my broadband network stability for the past few days. At times, I cannot access any websites at all. At best, things would work for a few minutes and stop again. I have just received an email tip from my hosting company — ServerFreak — on how we can temporarily solve this problem.

Setup your browser to use an alternative TM proxy. Details below:

Proxy: cdn-kmr-c2100-01.tm.net.my
IP address: 219.93.178.162
Port: 3128

Internet Explorer / Google Chrome:

Configure Internet Explorer / Google Chrome to use alternative TM proxy server

From the menu Tools –> Internet Options
Select the “Connections” tab.
Click on the “LAN settings” button.
Under the Proxy Server panel, select the checkbox “Use a proxy server for your LAN (…..)”.
Select the checkbox “Bypass proxy server for local addresses”.

Firefox:

Configure Firefox to use alternative TM proxy server

From the menu Tools –> Options
Select the “Network” tab.
Press the “Settings…” button.
Select the radiobutton “Manual proxy configurations:”.

Try this out. My connection is more stable after using the proxy above. You can remove it once the repair work is complete and stable. Help spread the link.

    I am using Firefox and even after applying the setting mentioned here, the situation is still the same.

    Most sites such as news sites and political sites just won’t load. Luckily manage to get your site!

    I am using Firefox and I have no problem. I am able to access most of the sites. The explanation that you have given for both Firefox and Internet explorer is a wonderful idea. This will be of great help to people who are new to computers.
