Sounds like you are better helped by getting in touch with those who
provided you that box and wrote that user guide.
This mailinglist is not a support forum but list about developing a
Debian-based box. We use wiki pages below
http://wiki.debian.org/FreedomBox for our documentation and have not
written a user documentation yet.
Don't get me wrong - I do not mean to push you away: You are more than
welcome to engage here, and you need not be experienced Debian geek.
Just want you to not make wrong expectations of this place as being a
support forum for user oriented stuff provided by others.
P.S. Perhaps your box is a DreamPlug which you receieved from the
FreedomBox Foundation. You can find their contact information here:
