Question about Computers & Internet
I currently have a desktop operating with XP and aol bt voyager 105 usb adsl modem, I've recently bought a laptop with Vista and cannot get on the internet as when I try to install original aol disc it is not compatible, is there something I could download on desktop and transfer to laptop to get me started ?
This what I would do:
1. Plug in a USB Drive in your XP Desktop. If you don't have one, get on that's at least 1GB size. (you can get them at Wal-Mart for like $20).
2, Connect via AOL and go to the AOL site below:
3. Download AOL 9.1 to save to the USB drive. If an automatic download attempt starts, just cancel it.
4. Disconnect the USB drive from the XP desktop and connect to the Vista laptop.
5. Access the USB drive and copy the AOL install file to your Vista laptop hard drive.
6. Remove the USB drive and connect the ADSL modem to your Vista laptop.
7. With the ADSL modem connected, go to the downloaded file in your hard drive and double-click it to run the install. With the ADSL model connected, it will simplify the installation because the AOL install will see the DSL link during some of the automated steps pertaining to determining the connection type.
After the install is done, run AOL and signon as you normally would.
Hope this helps!

Unfortunately, there is nothing that you can copy and transfer from your XP based desktop. The best solution is to call your provider and ask them for a Vista driver update for your usb modem.
Hope this helps.
