What internet service would you recommend for me to setup internet at home. I normally used 3G but its really giving me hassles now and wanna setup a proper internet at home. Any suggestions will be appreciated. I have not downloaded any data for share magic for two weeks and feel that I was blessed in disguise seeing the markets moves for this period.

Most people use ADSL from home. It means you have to do two things: you have to get Telkom to add an ADSL facility to your existing land line at home, and then you need to get an ISP to give you access to the Internet via the ADSL facility. From a hardware point of view you need an ADSL router. Telkom can do the entire thing for you, in other words, supply the ADSL on your line and then act as your ISP through Telkom Internet. Alternatively, you can choose to go through a 3rd party ISP like MWeb, WebAfrica, or any one of many others. If you're not tech savvy you will probably save yourself a lot of headache and frustration by contacting your local computer shop to assist and guide you.

Thanks for ur response. I do not have a landline at home, however I note here is connection and cables for a landline. Maybe it will just be easier if I get a 3rd party to connect me up instead. Yeah, defnitely not very tech savy so will need some guidance. Thanks again!

I use Vodacom. When i insert it on my private laptop I get the message that it malfunctioned, however when i put it into my work laptop it connects. So dont know whats the problem with my private laptop. Thats why I was thinking to get other internet connection on private laptop since my software and stuff is on it in any case. Maybe I should just take my laptop with 3G to vodacom and ask them to help me with it.

If you in CT contact me [email protected] What OS do you have on your laptop and desktop. Some 3G dongles need a firmware upgrade. If you go Telkom, you will need the ADSL service from them R152 incl VAT + you then need an ISP to give you internet. Cheapest is Afrihost - R29 p/GB at the moment. That is what I have..Now tell me what shares to BUY :)
