    Default ISP Info

    Hi All
    As you may know I am in a rest home. I am a guest on their xtra.co.nz. I also have a lifetime mail address from an earlier xtra account of our own.
    Now, a lady here wants to buy a laptop. Does she need an ISP ? She would have access to a pass worded connection to the Homes xtra account, would that give her a connection to the Net? If she wants email, not having an ISP, could she use Mozilla or suchlike? Thanks. PJ
    Deafness.
    When I was younger I heard but didn't listen.
    Now I am older, I listen but cannot hear.

    If it is not broke, don't make it broker by trying to make it better. (This applies specifically to PJ)

    Nope, she wouldn't need her own ISP, given that she'll use the Home's account. She'll just have to set up a username and password for her own use.

    By the homes Xtra account, do you mean Wireless Internet? If so she won't need her own connection. And she can just set up a GMail or Outlook account for email.
