Please, please help.

my old router turned into a plastic box so i had to buy a new one.

that was the easy bit.:whatthe:

taken me two days to set it up and i still cant access AOL.:cry:

Internet Explorer works fine, get on any site inc AOL thru IE but i cant access aol directly!!!!!

i get an error message 'AOL cannot connect to the internet'

the modem is a NETGEAR DG834GT WIRELESS ROUTER/MODEM

been thru all the settings, both modem and AOL.

i'm both at a loss and at the end of my teather.

have you thought about ditching AOL - they seem to operate to their own rules and idiosyncrasies?? have known far more dissatisfied customers than satisfied

Why worry at losing AOL. Thats the last thing I'd want to gain :D

hi Tony,

i use IE but shirl uses aol for all her bussiness orders ect and doesnt feel confident to setup new web details, IE: new email addersses ect. i cant be arsed.:ROFLMAO:

sounds like a good deal BUT talk talk have just taken over aol i believe and at the same time everyone in this area lost the lot, broadband, phone lines ect. took 4 days to sort it out.

they cant be any worse than aol but are they any better.

Pappa, the only way I could configure my router was to phone aol and let them talk you throgh. It took them about 20 minutes and was sorted.

Good luck:ROFLMAO:
