    Default DELL E6400 Mobile Broadband Settings

    Hi I have a DELL E6400 with integrated Mobile Broadband. How do I configure the settings for VodaCom and MTN.

    The settings are as follows:-
    Connection Name:
    Username:
    Password:
    Confirm Password:
    APN:


    My Administrator configured a Profile which uses MTN, infortunately I only get GPRS sometimes EDGE when at home, so I would like to configure another Profile for VodaCom. Or configure a generic one that uses both MTN and Voda.

    Thanks

    You can only use the network that the sim card in the machine is for. Like your phone, you can't just set it to vodacom one day and mtn the next...

    If you set the APN to 'internet', you should be able to use the same settings on MTN & Vodacom.

    I'm guessing the OP knows to change the SIM card as well.
