  1. Insert the CD.
  2. Go to Control Panel > Modems > Add
  3. Opt out of an automatic scan and say you want to select your modem from a list
  4. Click Next
  5. Click Have Disk
  6. Navigate to the \Utilities directory on the CD.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Select the set top box that appears in the list, and click OK.
  9. Click next/finish
  10. Close Control Panel and the Modems window.
  11. Open windows explorer and go to the Dial-Up-Networking folder.
  12. Double click add new connection
  13. Select the HomeChoice set top box in the modem drop down. Click Next
  14. Put a single 0 in both the area code and phone number. Click next
  15. Click finish, and a new connection should appear in the explorer window
  16. Right-click the new connection and click properties.
  17. On the Server Types tab ensure ONLY TCP/IP is selected.
