Abstract

In a first embodiment of the present invention, an exemplary method for initiating a network connection between a digital information appliance and a network includes commencing operation of the digital information appliance and loading connection data for connecting the digital information appliance to the network. Wherein the connection data is capable of loading before at least one of an operating system and network application is loaded. In a second aspect of the present invention, an exemplary method for determining availability of a network connection during a boot of a digital information appliance includes commencing operation of a digital information appliance. A basic input/output system (BIOS) capable of initiating a boot of the digital information appliance is initiated. The availability of a network connection is then determined, wherein the availability of the network connection is capable of being determined during a boot of the digital information appliance.
