It's....It's Alive!

And it's a lot faster, too.

Set up was pretty easy. I plugged the modem into the wall, connected it to a phone jack, connected it to my laptop using the included ethernet cable, and turned it on. A few minutes later it agreed to talk to me; I told it who I was; it connected up to Earthlink's net; and here I am!

Unfortunately, I can't leave the modem on my desk--got to get it hooked up to my wireless router. But that's a problem for another day.
