<font face="Cortoba">You should be ok with most common usb wireless
modems available now. For Australian specific models and connections
you can have a look at this link:<br>
which has some specific information relating to modems and providers.
Personally, I have just changed from a Huawei modem to a Sierra modem
and also my provider from Soul to Amaysim and had no problems
whatsoever - it was very simple and painless. If you have a particular
modem already (or one in mind) then post it here and we can probably
give you more specific help but it is very simple to do.<br>

My laptop has Ubuntu 10.10 on it and I want to be able to use it when we are
away in the caravan without mains power.
Yesterday I purchased a small inverter that runs off the 12 volts from the
4x4 and this seems to fire up the laptop OK.
Now, to get email etc I guess I need to buy a USB modem.
The ones I looked at yesterday say for Windows or Mac - will these generally
be OK for Linux too, or do I need a special one?
The shop assistant just rolled their eyes and said, dunno !
