    I have jsut bought a T-Mobile Broadband dongle and it doesn't auto install like in XP to get the Web n walk manager on the desktop..

    How can I install the software..

    Thanks

    You can enable the advanced desktop if that's the route you want to take. Instructions are available here.

    Failing that, you might want to install ubuntu or something similar as I found the Xandros distro that comes with the eee to be awfully restrictive.

    If you still can't get it to work, plug it in and nip into a terminal and issue lsusb and paste the response back here.

    The asus runs XP alright, might be worth getting a copy of the Fundamentals version.
