Using Telkom wireless should not be any different

Hallo Allan,
I am thinking that connecting using telkom wireless is not any different 
from Safaricom or any other phone modems. I have been using Ubuntu 8.10. 
So, I suggest that u use the modem on any other computer and see that it 
is working. If it is functioning ok, then u can check your settings. 
Otherwise, Ubuntu should just pick the network settings automatically 
with no issues. Infact, it works even behind a firewall.
