Using Globe Prolink Modem Hurricane 5200 with Linksys WRT120N

So our old Globe Aztech Modem broke and had to be replaced with a new one. The Globe technicians changed it with a Prolink Modem Hurricane 5200 which does not offer and wi-fi support and only has a single lan port. This meant that we needed to attach a router to it so we can share the internet in the house.

We have a Linksys WRT120N router and the default answer of just plugging in the Globe Modem to the Internet port via lan cable would not work.

So after some googling, I came across this blog that had the instructions on how to do it. The instructions are for Linksys LWRT54G2 but I can confirm that it also works for Linksys WRT120N.

For posterity and in case there are others like us who have a problem with configuring their modem with Globe, just check out that link.

THE BOX

When I saw the box, I was thinking..."This is probably a mistake."

I should probably just spend a little extra and get an HTC Desire.

This phone was nearly 13,000 pesos at the store when I was about to buy it. Regretfully, I should have bought it from a different store I was in a few weeks ago where it was available for about 11,990 pesos.

But it was difficult to make a decision on this. All the [online] research was basically saying, "Go big when buying an Android phone. Spending any less would be a mistake."

Or, "Go buy an Iphone because it has all the nice games." (As a gamer, this part of the decision mattered a lot).

Or, "Go buy an Ipad, it looks really cool." [Admittedly, it still does.]

So why was I going to buy this? The box didn't really enchant me in any way. But I wasn't buying it for the box.

I've done even more research on Android, and all the signs point to it being a major breakthrough that points to our digital future…
