Firefox 3D image Search

Today I was looking for some interesting Firefox browser add-ons  and accidentally found one 3D image addon called cooliris. I downloaded and installed this addon and checked whether it is a good stuff or not. It is really impressing as the normal Google image search displays in 3 dimensional  view with additional features. There are many other add-ons which provide same 3 dimensional photo search feature. Let us check this one first and go to other add-ons. You might be interested to see, how photo viewing is different on my PC after installing this tool. Some of the screen shots are attached below.

CoolIris is not just for Google. It works well for other  platforms like Bing,YouTube etc. It can be selected from the options on right hand top of the window. You just need to click on the search and various options will come out.

How to Check My Tata Photon Plus Internet Usage and Bills

I have been using Tata Photon Plus service for one month while my room mate is using Reliance Netconnect for his Laptop. We have chosen different wireless broadband services for our laptops because of the concept "Don't put all your eggs in one basket". I purchased my Tata Photon Plus wireless USB modem from their online store instead of local dealer. It is because there was an offer (Laptop bag worth of 1.5K ) for every online Photon Plus purchase.

Update: Special offers are purely up to the time to time decisions made by Photon plus marketing team and I am not sure they offer the same at this point of time.


I received the packet including Photon plus modem (with a small delay) and the Internet is working fine (Though I am not getting 3.1Mbps what they offered) with reasonable speed. Seems everything fine but now only I noticed one issue how to check my Internet usage ?. In the manuals I received, it is written that you can check the Photon Plus Internet usage by logon to online Photon Plus account but I didn't receive any online account details. Then I followed the online instructions and found that we need to create an account first using our connection number and tata photon plus account number instead of a ready-made account usually provided by ISPs.


Then the second problem... I don't know what is my account number and connection number. The local Tata photon plus agents activated the device in my computer and went without giving any clues. Somehow I found the Photon Plus account number by checking the mails (e-bill) and find the connection number via photon plus customer support. Now only I understood I am in time based plan instead of data based plan. Right now I send a request to tata photon plus customer support to change the plan and waiting for their response.

Update: Successfully changed to data based plan (Took just one day only).

Compare Tata Photon Plus With Other Mobile Broadband Services

I think if you are not yet started using Photon Plus service, you may be wondering to have a comparison between other wireless broadband services. Let me tell you frankly the speed and reliability of any mobile broadband service depends on the signal quality at user location. So it may not be true if I say Photon plus is faster than BSNL Wireless broadband (WiMAX )or vice versa. It purely depends on how good the signal quality of WiMAX service and Photon Plus service. So my recommendation is to tell the service provider to show a live demo of the Internet speed at your location before taking the final decision. Now a days you can see a lot of advertisements about the unlimited Internet Usage Plans by Photon Plus and Other service providers. Before bite the ads it is your duty to read carefully the conditions to use unlimited usage plans. You may not expect the same speed after crossing the threshold (for example 3GB download) and after crossing the threshold download value, your service may be degraded to 2G automatically. I think it will be helpful for you if I leave links to my articles about other major wireless broadband service providers.

  1. Photon Plus and Reliance Netconnect:

    If you are looking for a comparison of Tata Photon plus service and Reliance Netconnect, I suggest you to read my article about the later by following the link below.

  2. Photon Plus and Idea Net Setter:

    Just like Photon plus service, another market leader in wireless broadband service is Idea Net Setter. Though Photon Plus use CDMA, Idea Net Setter is 3G (GSM). To learn the speed difference between Photon Plus and Idea 3G at your location, better you can go to their official sites or ask the representatives to give a live demo. To read about Idea 3G broadband, click on the link below.

  3. Photon Plus and BSNL WiMAX (3G EVDO):

How to Configure Linksys WRT160N WiFi Router With DSL Modem

WRT160N is one of the popular Wireless routers from Linksys which works on 802.11n standards. Wireless N is far superior to other standards like 802.11a,b and g in WiFi speed and network coverage. This tutorial explains how to configure this device without the help of setup disc comes with the package. Here I assume you have a DSL broadband connection and share the Internet with additional devices using WRT160N. If you are using cable modem, there is a little difference in the way we configure it. The difference is mentioned at the end of the guide.

Configure WRT160N With DSL Broadband Connection

To perform it, follow the step by step instructions provided below.
  1. Connect your Computer to the WAN port of the WiFi Router using an Ethernet cable

    Linksys WRT160N Wireless Setup

  5. Setup WRT160N for DSL Modem

    If your DSL modem is DHCP enabled, you may need to change the IP address of your Wireless router. It is because you cannot use IP address in the same network range of your modem(third octet) for your wireless router. To know your modem IP address connect your computer to the modem. On command prompt type ipconfig and press enter. Check the IP address. So you may change it to 192.168.X.1

    Where X can be any number in between 1 to 255 excluding the number used on modem. After changing the IP address, click on save settings. Your connection must be like this.

    • Connect LAN Port of Modem to WAN/Internet Port of Router

    • WAN Port Router to LAN Port of PC

    • Power on all devices in the network
