    I think I have it fixed. are the first 3 digete letters and the last 3 digets numbers?

  • ohiotom May 11, 2010

    I'm not sure what you're asking. What number and letters?

  • ohiotom May 11, 2010

    On the sign on screen there's a pull down called "Connection". It should say "Broadband" in that box. Sometimes it accidently gets changed and it's looking for a dial up connection. If this does not fix the problem then click on Connection Options and see if you can reset the connection type. If you're still stuck just ask for more help...

My mother in law gave my son a Ststemax AOL Optimized PC, we would like to use it for the internet, but we don't have and do not want dial up. Are internet provider isn't AOL, however everytime we try to...

so i would uninstall aol. start>control>add or remove programs, then click on aol and uninstall.
for internet explorer i would right click on the desktop, select properties, click on the tab that says desktop, then click the button at the bottom that says customize desktop. in there, there might be a check box next to internet explorer. if you check the box and push ok it will be on the desktop. if it doesnt show up it should still be in start>all programs and near the end it should be there. if it is on the desktop, right click on the icon, choose properties, click on the tab that says connections, in there, there should be like three options with little round check spots next to them. if you can, choose the one that says never dial a connection. see if that stuff helps.

After aol main computer went down they told me to reoncifugre the router i dont know how to do this and as i dont have a home fone line i cnt ring them any help please?

First thing to do is try to connect to the Internet without AOL then sign on to AOL using the broadband connection. When Internet Explorer is open, even without a connection, go to Tools>Internet Options>Connections and check the 'Never Dial a Connection', Click on Advanced and check the 'Automatically Detect Settings' check box. If you are not connecting to the Internet then turn off or unplug the power to the modem, turn it back on and wait 2 minutes. If you don't connect then do the same with the router power. If you still haven't connected using just Internet Explorer, NOT AOL, then talk to your router directly:) Do this by Start>Run>type (Linksys) or (Motorola). A logon screen appears. User Name is the manufacturer's name and 'admin' is the password. A web page or dashboard will appear. For a cable modem select DHCP. For DSL select PPPoE. Static addresses can also be entered if you know what they are but probably not. When you see ip addresses listed open Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Chrome or whatever browser flavor you like EXCEPT AOL. Once connected to the Internet then go to AOL. More specifics on your broadband service and hardware makes will get you more specific help if you need. Happy surfing!

no, but you need to configure the router to connect to the internet, you should have a "quick start guide" that will help you connect to your router and set your ADSL dial settings (as it needs this to connect you to your internet service)

once these connection settings are set you should be able to connect to the internet

you can then explore the other settings including the wireless configuration of your router

AOL broadband connection

The answer is very simple ... Uninstall the AOL browser, you do not need it to connect to the internet, AOL's browser, as I have discovered chokes your bandwidth and slows down your PC. I would strongly recommend using something like Firefox (you can add the AOL toolbar if needed). I removed AOL's browser over a year ago and have not had a single problem, bespite the fact that AOL insist I must have it installed on my PC ... Absolute rubbish.
