Welcome to LQ!

You don't say which version of linux you are running on the EEE701, but if it is the original xandros, which IIRC is based on debian, then this ubuntu guide to "Internet connection sharing" should help you. Scroll down to the part that is titled Ubuntu Internet Gateway Method (iptables)
