Eee Box

Eee Box Unboxed

Going Online

To get my parents' Eee Box online, I will need to install the USB dial-up modem. Since the modem requires drivers loaded from a CD-ROM, I will put the disc into my laptop. Then, I will access the DVD drive of my laptop to pull the installation over to the Eee Box.

It is a simple task to add the Eee Box to my wireless network. After setting it to access my network workgroup and allowing File and Printer Sharing, I simply pointed the operating system to my laptop to access the DVD drive. Then I connected the modem, ran the driver disc, and was online within a few moments.
