Start by resetting your router, then remove the the AOL program from your machine and reinstall it. If this is a wireless connection, you will want to uninstall the wireless drivers from the device manager and reboot. The machine will find the wireless and reinstall the drivers. This will fix it if it's a software or driver glitch. If it doesn't fix it, then the problem is most likely with the router, and you'll need to have a service tech come and check the router.

Someone is using my ip address


There are a couple of very valid ways that the same IP addresses might appear to be in use by several different computers. If the voting software using only your IP address to check for voting abuse, then it's not doing as good a job as it should be.


Two scenarios come to mind immediately: routers and bad IP detection.
As I've discussed before, a router allows several computers to share a single internet connection. One side effect of doing so is that all the computers that are sharing that connection appear on the internet as having the same IP address. The internet IP address actually belongs to the router, and it manages the routing the appropriate data to and from the appropriate computer behind it.
If you're in a home or small business that uses a router to share an internet connection, then any of the other computers could have voted and appeared as having come from the same IP address your computer would.
If you're connecting from a larger facility, say a school or corporation, the same issue can arise. Many facilities connect their internal network to the internet through a set of routers. A company of several thousand might appear as only a handful of IP addresses on the internet. If someone else within the company voted, it's quite possible that you might appear as the same IP address when you attempt to vote later.
"Using just the IP address to counter voter fraud and other types of abuse is common because it's easy." And then there's AOL.
When last I checked, I believe AOL puts all of its subscribers behind the equivalent of a collection of routers. Therefore when you as an AOL user connect to a web site you may be using the same IP address as some other AOL subscriber who came before you.


There's another problem that could be at play here as well.
If you're behind a router, your IP address is an IP address on your local network, not the internet. Most consumer routers use the 192.168.1.x range. In fact, most will start assigning IP addresses at 192.168.1.1, then 192.168.1.2, then 3 and so on.
As a result there are thousands of machines out there at IP address 192.168.1.1 on their local network.
If the voting abuse software attempts to use the IP address of the machine rather than the IP address of the machine's connection to the web site, then it'll just be wrong. The first person with an IP of 192.168.1.1 might be able to vote, but all that follow would be seen as coming from the same address.
It's very unlikely, but it is one additional way that the voting abuse detection scheme might fail.


Using just the IP address to counter voter fraud and other types of abuse is common because it's easy. As you can see, that often has the unintended side-effect of blocking more than just a single abuser. Unfortunately blocking an individual computer for these types of accesses is difficult - at least doing so in a way that isn't trivial to circumvent is difficult. The most common alternate approach is to require registration and login to vote, which naturally reduces the number of voters as people are reluctant to jump through the additional hoops.

My acer aspire one wont connect to internet. it says it is connected to wireless, and i have wired it to modem but the problem still persists. please help.


Based on your description, the following is assumed.
1. The service to your Internet Service Provider is through a cable or DSL modem.
2. Internet service was initially set-up with your netbook directly connected to the modem.
3. A wireless router was since added and is using the direct wired connection to the modem.
4. The netbook is connected to the wireless access point being provided by the router.
5. The netbook says it is connected to the wireless access point but still no internet access.
The problem is likely due to the modem capturing the MAC address of the netbook when access to the internet servce was initially set up using the netbook directly connected to the modem and now the modem will only allow access with the netbook directly connected to it. You can check this out by reconnecting the netbook directly to the modem. It may be possible to "flush" the captured MAC by unplugging the AC power to the modem, waiting a few minutes and then powering back up with the router connected in place of the netbook. To make it easier, you may want connect your netbook directly to the router's LAN side to check if you now have internet access through the router. If you still don't have internet access, you will need to use your netbook to log onto the router to clone your netbook's MAC address for the router's WAN connection. The router's user guide/manual has directions on logging in and doing the MAC address clone. It will also have an explanation as to what is a MAC address.

Once signing on to AOL, I cannot stay connected for very long. I continually get kicked off; time and time again.


You are having a problem with AOL's connectivity program. I have had nummerous issues with AOL's software and they do not seem to be too concerned about the few people that use it but are having issues with it. Just don't go hog wild and start messing with your router settings or your network. It is an AOL problem and not your computer. If you are having no problems just running Internet Explorer and are not getting kicked off then your answer lies with them. It got so bad for me, I use IE8 and access my AOL account off the internet browser. I've had AOL work in some computers and I have been unable to get it to work in others....there is always 100 different answers as to why but AOL is unable to take the blame and would rather pass it on to your network settings. The only thing I have been able to suggest that has worked is completely and thoroughly uninstall everything aol, and reinstall the software. Now, when I say completely uninstall, I mean download a program called "Revo Uninstaller", it is free from www.download.com. Just put the name in their search box and it will bring it up. run that program and choose option (4) when you want to unistall something. Make sure though if the program asks if you want to reboot, you answer no. You will reboot after you get rid of everything. Just answer yes to everything the program asks. Reboot.....re-install

Asus PC 900 HD wifi connection failed?


check if the build in wifi finds your router/the home-WAN u already use(??)

turn over router, write down the WPA-nr (16 digits)

use logon program-tool provided with router or laptop,

if working, it should at least display some of the wifi-nets/hot-spots/WANs available at ur place,

then log onto your one, enter wpa-key(is password and for encrypting your connection)

choose defining ip-config using DHCP-standard/automatic ip-adressing,

a network-connection symbol may now pop up at lower right on the task bar :

and retry surfing.


good luck

Wireless Connection


The WPA code is the password to access the router's network, so it can use your internet connection. As long as the Xbox has both the SSID and the WPA password, it can access the internet through the router.

The SSID ( Chris_PC_Network ) is mostly irrelevant to the network connection, and is purely aesthetical. Its only use is to help users distinguish between different networks (so you don't use a neighbor's network or vice versa).

Wireless Router Randomly Disconnects


I am having this problem as well, however my connection goes from 56M down to 1M and I cant connect to anything. I previously thought it was my router but none of my other systems experience it. If you know someone with an external Wireless card I'd suggest trying that before purchasing one. I dont believe anyone can fix an internal wireless card that goes bad. Try downloading the latest drivers for your PC/LAPTOP's wireless device and reload it.
