I recently obtained a computer that originated in canada. I am in the U.S. I have highspeed internet access and no dial up connection. When I access AOL, it takes me to a canadian page. I can type aol.com, and it changes it to aol.ca. How do I change it?

Many manufacturer's (especially Dell) have a habit of creating a hidden partition on your local drive which holds everything you need to put your computer back to day zero. Access to this is acheived either through a combination of key presses (this will show up when booting the computer as a message stating "press xx to repair your computer") or through the original cd/dvd rom that came with your new system.
You can obtain the original discs through dell from their website. You can obtain information and help through the dell forums.

Try to check in your wife's computer the network connection make sure that the LAN connection is not disabled and has a DHCP configuration, on the TCP/IP settings choose obtain IP address automatically, and also make sure you have the same workgroup name.
yaa you need a wirrless access point router.
Through this you can build your own network and attach many more computers as per your need. So using this you can also share your Internet connections to all your computers connected in your network.
for dial up simply a modem .... on laptops if you do not have a builtin modem you can purchase a pc-card modem that goes into your pcmcia slot ... for highspeed either a ethernet (same option as modem) but almost all modern laptops have a built in ethernet ... or usb ... also I highly recommend a router if you are going highspeed ... even if you only have one computer ... a router will protect your system because it provides a NAT firewall. If you go with a router make sure to set up the internet connection on the router do not tunnel through the router with a PPPoE connection
this is a easy task, just go to add/remove programs in contro panel, and go ahead and remove the AOL 9.OVR. then all other things from AOL. eje, internet connection AOL. etc. then, reinstall the AOL 9. ONLY. depending on your internet connection, modem? wireless, cable, see if all work fine.
