Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
I have a netgear router DG834G which connects my laptop and desktop to aol broadband.
Both worked great but now my desk top will not connect from the AOL sign on screen. I can still go online with internet explorer. Switched off my firewall but still cannot connect on AOL..
I an 75 years old and had a stroke a few years back so my short term memory is useless and I easily get confused so I may be slow returning any communication
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.

When using a router, you dont have to click an icon to connect to the net, when you open internet explorer the router is already on line awaiting you to connect to the router, in otherwords, there is no need to dial up AOL, as routers are always online, unless of course you tuen it off.
