Getting latitude and longitude readings in Google Maps

Yesterday my manager asked me for help. We’re required by our client to provide coordinates reading for few places and she has pinpoint the locations in Google Maps and now she need to find out the coordinates of those places.

The problem is, Google Maps doesn’t provide you with coordinates reading unlike Google other similar application, Google Earth. Actually there is a way to find it out as I believe this is included in the application itself. After not so much googling, I’ve found out the way to get those coordinates

First you need to make sure that the point or placemark is centre on the map by right-click on it and choose center map here option. After that, copy this JavaScript code and paste it on your browser’s address bar.

javascript:void(prompt('',gApplication.getMap().getCenter()));

Press enter and a pop-up window with latitude and longitude values will appear. That’s all, it is that easy J.

Hook up Maxis wireless broadband connection with wireless router

Yesterday my boss gave me a wireless maxis broadband modem and a TP-Link TL-WR542G wireless router and asked me to hook-up those two devices so that our wireless maxis broadband connection can be shared throughout the entire office. My office currently using Streamyx Enterprise 1.0Mbps package and this maxis wireless broadband serves as a backup and emergency Internet connection plan.

 

The task was quite important given that we have encountered so many problems and downtimes on our streamyx connection. Most recently was just last week when we had almost no Internet connection for almost 4 days as a result of bad luck and mishaps that among others are unreliable technical support, faulty modem and also faulty splitter (can you imagine all of that happened in one week?)
