Just wondering if there is anyone out there who can point me in the
right direction of things I need to know ....

I'm taking myself and my business to South Africa for 12 weeks.  I live
in the UK, I have bought myself an Acer TravelMate 4020, with dialup,
broadband and wireless connections.

I shall be staying with family with access to dialup only.

My questions are

will my modem work?
will my power supply be compatible?
what do i need to do to be able to use wireless if I go to an internet
cafe or such type of location

Thanks for replying.

Your modem will work OK.

I was there earlier this year and used my GPRS mobile for internet access It
is incredibly cheap out there. Buy an MTN simcard at the airport (costs 3
rand with 10 rand credit!) and ask them to enable GPRS on it.

Go to for info on MTNDataLive
