Hello everyone,

I'm going to be installing Ubuntu soon. I'm assuming Ubuntu will support South African ADSL, so I'd just like to know how quickly / easily I'll be able to get Ubuntu online once I've installed?

That depends...

Are you using a router?

Are you using wireless to connect to the router?

Yeah,

Using a Telkom 5102G router, but not using the WiFi, using normal ethernet cable...

Then you're all set. Shouldn't be a problem in the slightest.

If you *do* have a problem come and ask here.

Otherwise, good luck and have fun.

Eish.... That was hard....

I ran the install cd and adsl was up!! :D I'm *very* impressed so far! Don't remember being able to browse the web while windoze installed! ;)
