Hi there,
First post - could be a very stupid one, but i don't know a definitive answer, so here goes...

I just moved into a new house, which does not yet have a phone line or any kind of internet/satellite capabilities set up yet.

I have plugged in my MCi8080 and it tries to connect to a network, but obviously fails because there isn't one for it to connect to. It then freezes and basically doesn't do anything at all and i have to turn it off at the wall.

Can i use the system without any network connection? it seems like the answer is no, and if that's the case i'm quite surprised - hence hoping that i'm being stupid!
