    Hi all,

    I'm back with another request - could someone that has received their slate open a command line window (cmd.exe) and run the following command:

    wmic nic get name, index > nics.txt

    and post the results (the contents of nic.txt) here? I'm looking at adapting a network utility I wrote a few years ago and I'd like to verify it'll work on the slate.

    Thanx.

    John

    Uh - did anyone notice what's listed at index 13:

    13 HP un2420 Mobile Broadband Module Network Device

    I wonder if the mobile broadband module is installed and just not enabled?

    Check the device manager maybe? Should either have a driver there or a big "?", I would think. Wow. That would be so cool if its there.

    Does the label incude an MEID number? Or whatever AT&T calls their equivalent? You would need those to activate it on a network.

    Oh wait a minute. Has anybody but Rick done this? He's the program manager. I bet he's dog-fooding the 3G module and if someone else runs the command, it won't be there.

    Looks like Rick is dog-fooding. I do not get the mobile broadband adapter listed when I run the command.

    What does "dog fooding" mean?.

    Edit: never mind; I looked it up. It means "using your own product".
    Edit: but thanks anyway!
