NFN Setup CD for Windows
The Naples Free-Net set-up CD-Rom for dialup is designed to work with Windows 7, Vista, and Windows XP. The latest version has a installation file dated 5/10/2010. Earlier versions will not work on Windows 7 and Vista. Detailed written instructions for manual installation; i.e., not using a CD-Rom are also available from the NFN Office or on our FAQ pages.
For those with the 2010 CD: If the label is blue (the earliest ones handed out in 2010), these NFN Disks were copied to DVD formatted CD’s. These CD’s will only read on computers with DVD drives. If the label is pink or white, these CD’s should work with any type of CD drive.
If you are a registered user of the Naples Free-Net and need a CD-Rom please visit us at our office. You must know what version of Microsoft Windows you are using (Win 7, Vista, XP) when you use the CD.
If you would like to sign up with the Naples Free-Net please visit us in our office (see the “NFN Helpdesk Hours and Location” on the NFN Main website). You must be a member in order to install NFN dialup.
