You should try posting to the eeepc forum on http://forum.eeeuser.com/ or (if you still have the default linux install Xandros) the Xandros Forum on http://forums.xandros.com/

You should give the make and model of your mobile phone and details of your ISP you are trying to connect to.

Have you tried Wine? It allows you to install and run some windows software on Linux. If you are planning on installing windows itself then that would mean finding a copy of it somewhere and ditching Linux or dual booting it. The eec pc HDD is too small....for 2 OSe, so make your choice.
