    Has both but was running wireless before so tried to do it the same way now - phoned telkom's tech support - first person couldnt help coz he doesnt know Mozilla firefox - then second person connect via ethernet - eventually just went wirless route - it works but hell its slower than my old dialup speed! Strange though my banking sites are fast and bid or buy - just bought 2 diving knives through ebay 20 minz ago - all went like normal speed but MASA very very slow

    What you need is a Billion modem, it's one of the newer Telkom units and much better that the old. Telkom seem to be having huge speed problems the last couple of days but not that they will admit.

    Ok can do that but first must disconnect this connection and reconnect with telkom then do this test or run it with this 3G?
