    I am in Ghana with iPad mini only and I do not have wifi in the place I am living. It is wired, is there anything I can do to get internet? Desperate....Will be here for 6 months.

    Hi there and welcome, if the place you are in has wired Internet access you could get yourself a cheap wifi router and plug it in, it will give you the access that you require but I would check with the bill payers first as it is their service that you will be using.

    Hi Gabriel1,
    Thank you for your welcome (and quick response). So I guess my next dilemma will be to find a wireless router in Cape Coast, Ghana. If I had someone back in the states send me an Airport Express, would that work?
    Thanks for your help!

    That should work although there are cheaper wifi routers than the Airport Express and I certainly can't help you with the other bit.......Ghana is a long way from the UK.

    Good luck!

    Maybe something like this? http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-Wirele...lp_300189_1_23?ie=UTF8&qid=1373042181&sr=1-23

    One thing you'll want to check is if there is any set up required on the router itself as that may need a laptop or PC.....it may be possible for someone in the US to set it up for you before they send it but I'm no expert on routers.
