If you have the one with the network interface, this link may help
It will instruct you how to add SSH capabilities to the unit, and since it 
is a Linux machine, once you have SSH access you can alter it as you like 
(and also remove the MioNet agent)
Do everything with care. I think such action may terminate the warranty

Have fun
