Getting to know your touch pad
Turning on your touch pad
Using your touch pad
- Tap to select icons or tabs on the screen.
- Tap to set the cursor in a text area you want to type in.
C) Select button
The wireless keyboard provides easy access to Instant AOL menus and to simple screen navigation features. If menu options require an online connection, the touch pad will automatically connect to AOL.
Using the power modes
Your Gateway Connected Touch Pad uses very little power and is designed to be turned on all the time. Leaving your touch pad connected to a power outlet and turned on makes Instant AOL available any time you need it.
After several minutes of inactivity, the display turns off. (You can also press the power button to turn off the display).
After an extended period of online inactivity, Instant AOL disconnects from the Internet.
Using AOL Home Networking
If you have AOL Home Networking set up on other computers in your home or office, you can connect your Gateway Connected Touch Pad to the home network. AOL Home Networking provides shared access to your AOL account through the home network.
To connect your touch pad to the network:
- Connect one end of the telephone cable to the telephone dial-up connection on the back of the touch pad and the other end to the telephone jack used for the home network.
- Select the Setup menu, then Connection, and follow the on screen instructions to select the home networking setup.
- Connect other computers and shared devices to the network according to manufacturers' instructions.
Avoid excess moisture and temperature extremes.
Clean the keyboard and Gateway Connected Touch Pad with a soft, damp cloth moistened with water only. When cleaning the display, squirt a little water on the cloth (never directly on the screen), and wipe the screen.
Clean the keys occasionally to remove dust and lint trapped underneath them. The easiest way to do this is to blow dirt from underneath the keys using a can of compressed air.

Setting up your system
Read and follow all instructions marked on the product and in the documentation before you operate your system. Retain all safety and operating instructions for future use.
Do not use this product near water or a heat source such as a radiator.
Set up the system on a stable work surface.
The product should be operated only from the type of power source indicated on the rating label.
If your device has a voltage selector switch, make sure that the switch is in the proper position for your area. The voltage selector switch is set at the factory to the correct voltage.

Never insert objects of any kind into the device ventilation openings.
Some products are equipped with a three-wire power cord to make sure that the product is properly grounded when in use. The plug on this cord will fit only into a grounding-type outlet. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug into an outlet, contact an electrician to install the appropriate outlet.
If you use an extension cord with this system, make sure that the total ampere rating on the products plugged into the extension cord does not exceed the extension cord ampere rating.
Care during use
Do not walk on the power cord or allow anything to rest on it.
Do not spill anything on the system.
When the device is turned off, a small amount of electrical current still flows through it. To avoid electrical shock, always unplug all power cables and modem cables from the wall outlets before cleaning the system.
Unplug the system from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified personnel if:
The power cord or plug is damaged.
Liquid has been spilled into the system.
The system does not operate properly when the operating instructions are followed.
The system was dropped or the cabinet is damaged.

The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) is used to determine the number of devices which may be connected to the telephone line. Excessive RENs on a telephone line may result in the devices not ringing in response to an incoming call. In most areas, the sum of RENs should not exceed five (5.0). To be certain of the number of devices that may be connected to a line, as determined by the total RENs, contact the local telephone company.
If this device causes harm to the telephone network, the telephone company will notify you in advance that temporary discontinuance of service may be required. The telephone company may request that you disconnect the equipment until the problem is resolved.

Remain on the line and briefly explain to the dispatcher the reason for the call.
Perform such activities in the off-peak hours such as early morning or late evenings.
The United States Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 makes it unlawful for any person to use a computer or other electronic device to send any message via a telephone fax machine unless such message clearly contains, in a margin at the top or bottom of each transmitted page or on the first page of the transmission, the date and time it is sent, an identification of the business, other entity, or other individual sending the message, and the telephone number of the sending machine or such business, other entity, or individual.
