WABnet Connection Cables
You must use a network cable to connect your computer to WABnet -- a phone cord will not work. The bookstore also stocks network cables in various lengths.
Network (Etherent) Card
Your computer will need an ethernet network card to connect to WABnet -- modems are not compatible with WABnet. Most computers have a built-in network card. If yours doesn't, you can purchase network cards for most computers at Staples in Crawfordsville, or contact your computer's manufacturer.
