The problem is not your modem.
The problem is your internet provider connection.
However, if you refuse to take my council you can call AOL as a paying customer and ask for help tweaking your settings which they will help your for free.

After you have spent hours on the phone to no good result, you will change internet service providers *S*

Thank you and good luck.

If the local area connection icon specifies as network cable unplugged, then the computer has not sensed the connection between the computer to the cable modem / DSL modem, please reseat the cable behind the cable / dsl modem to the computer. If the icon still shows unplugged, then change the network cable between the two.

If the issue still persists, please revert with more details lik the kind of internet connection used and the reason for reinstalling.

Can't locate a Modem connection


Ok, First off, Yes, if you have a plug in the back of your computer that allows a standard phone connection wire from computer to the wall, that usually means you have a modem. If you have the ability to get Broadband internet, my suggestion is to get that instead. Its more reliable and doesnt have an automatic disconnect feature that AOL has always had. Also, if you already have broadband, then you can connect with AOL directly through the broadband connection and skip the Modem use entirely. Best i can tell you, other than if your computer is not finding the modem, that means its been either disabled or is missing the drivers.

Call your phone company and tell them that while you are talking on the phone, every once in a while, you notice there is noise. Tell them sometimes the noise gets really bad and it is difficult to hear the person on the other end, but other times it is not even noticeable. They will check the line and maybe change out a segment of cabling, hopefully giving you a better connection.

Modems are twitchy. They can show problems with the line before you actually would notice noise. A small 'white lie' may help the TelCo get things running the way they should be.

Hope this helps.

AOL has changed my service to aol free e-mail as I have signed up with embarq for high speed service. I've had AOL for years. After getting thr high speed service, AOL stopped my monthly billing but I was...


They should be in your address book as always. It shouldn't have changed. Try to write an email and see if your address book icon shows up on the right sige of the email. You can also go to the toolbar at the top and under mail it will have address book. If this isn't what you're looking for let me know. I've had AOL since they were a baby. If this solves your problem please rate this as fixed. If not, please don't rate yet. Add a comment explaining your problem a little further and I'll be more than happy to help you out. You reached the right guy for AOL problems. Thanks. Let me know how it goes and if you need more help.
