Just to update, i got a xiaomi mini mi router. Set it to bridge mode and changed the SSID to the same as my Singtel router. Connected the Mio tv to the mini mi router and it works.


However my S8+ or Mipad do not auto switch wifi to the strongest signal. So have to manually select it.

Just turn off the wifi function on the xiaomi and use the wifi on my from the best placed router.

My two cents suggestion for your problems:

 

First, I suspect in the newer flats the contractors should be using 2 sets of UTP network cables per room, one to provide network, the other to provide phone. If yes, you are in luck.

 

The idea is to connect the ONT network port into the utility room panel port that leads to your room that's nearest the centre of the flat. Then in that room you setup your router. In order to feed the LAN signals back to the rest of the rooms, you will need to change the phone port into a LAN port in your room, as well as at the utility cabinet, then plug the LAN port on your router into this new port. Then you use a switch at the utility cabinet to link all these ports together.

 

Option 2, get Google Wifi or mesh wireless devices. Use the LAN port to link back to the main router. This way you don't need to relocate your router, and by using LAN points, you will get maximum throughput. And you can put up as many devices as you need, to get enough WiFi coverage. The key advantage of mesh device over normal AP is that they can handover to each other seamlessly.

 

Hope it helps.

Go back to the shop where you bought to get the driver. Its not easy to find back a driver with same specs, have to really walk around and find. 

 

What sort of lamp is it ?

Maybe you can bring it back to where you bought it from and ask them to test it on the spot to verify. Remember to test the replacement on the spot as well if they do replace it for you. 

There are many range of LED lights available in the market. Some are classified from Bin 1(best grade) to Bin 4 (lousiest). Ask the supplier which bin it belongs to. If they don't know what you are talking about, then most prob those LEDs are cheapo ones with sub-standard drivers. Better to go with Reputable brands to last you a longer time.

Thanks for all the replies; my LED was installed by developer and getting the designated electrician would cost me an arm and leg; hoping to “outsource” the repair to an external electrician

Open it, take a photo and post it here. Clearly show the written markings on the driver.

Why dont you take out the whole lights including driver and proceed to any electrical stall.

If the driver is an issue, they will change it for you on the spot. 

If the adapter is different (existing light and new driver), they can even do a simple modification by cutting off the wire.

I am not sure of the cost though.

But that does not tell much. Must see the output DC voltage also.

Yes. I agree with the others with you taking a picture to show us.
Sometimes it’s cheaper to just change the led altogether instead of sourcing for the driver.
I re-run my cove lights from olden days fluorescent tubes to led type which I ordered online and it didn’t cost me an arm or leg.

Take a photo of the driver specs and show it to any of the lighting shops. Normally cost around $10+ to $20+ nia. Just buy one and change it yourself very easy wan. For safety...remember MUST switch off the power from the main circuit before u touch anything. If u call electrician the charges could be at lease $80 to $100 a trip if im not wrong.

The intention was never to boast.

But many a time, most of us have found out the hard and expensive way when we call someone to do a ‘simple’ job.

U could actually be charged $200 for an item which actually costs $20 and could actually get online or at sim lim tower.

And after my $120 toilet choke lesson, I’m quite determined to try to figure out any problem myself first before I give up and hand over to the ‘professionals’.
