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.

I use AOL as my ISP, with British Telecom supplying my telephone line rental. On Friday 2nd my internet connection kept dropping out, and then eventually stopped connecting altogether. My original router...


If BT tested the phone line is OK but did AOL test the connection to the Netgear router and get the IP address of your Netgear router.
The phone connection is OK but the ADSL connection from the telephone exchange may not be working, that is why you are not getting an ADSL light.

Cannot get onto internet


disable the firewall on control panel.
check all the properties boxes on the network
connections and make sure firewall is disabled.

access the router setup and make sure that VCI is set to manual
and that you enter in the settings yourself (eg: 0,38 for aol broadband). Don't leave VCI, etc on auto, the router can't handle it.

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.

AOL has been and will always have problem (had to do repairs on AOL computers since 1994)

If you have a DSL or Cable connection why pay again for AOL? That means you are paying twice for the same internet connection - and AOL causes lots of problems.

For AOL problems, it is best to contact AOL.

Cant get onto configuration page of router as says authentification failed


In the simplest sense could this be an intermittent wire issue -- evidenced by depending how it is moved it disconnects or reconnects? Secondly if this is your device and not AOL's or someone else's like your ISP AND YOU KNOW THE ENTIRE CONFIGURATION CONTENTS.

REPEAT AND YOU KNOW THE ENTIRE CONFIGURATION CONTENTS. You may be able to find a user guide with reset instructions to get access to the configuration again.

Cannot access Internet thru router


Power off the following items: Power off the router wait for five minutes. You may have to reset the router. You shouuld have a reset button on the router some where. After resetting the router make sure you set your security settings. Have you tried uninstalling your firewall software and then reinstalling? I have worked on alot of machines that had problems with AOL and I like cable or dsl better. 1. Left click on start and choose the run option. 2. Type the folllowing text CMD and choose ok or enter key. 3. Now you should have a dos menu. 4. Type the following command line ipconfig/flushdns 5. Close everything out and trying connecting to the internet now. Good luck.

Belkins router not connecting to cable modem


You need to start from beginning. Clear all temp internet files and run this programme Start>Run ipconfig /flushdns and hit enter. Get into the routers settings(probably 192.168.2.1) and ensure in the Lan settings that 'DHCP Server' is on and wireless is enabled.(you might need to be connected by RJ45 lan cable first) If it's a 125mbps router change settings to 54mbps to try that speed first(especially as your wireless cards will be 54 mbps) look in Mac address Filtering is off. Look in the DHCP Client list and see if your pc's were allocated ip addresses, if so it should allow an internet connection. Go to both your pc's wireless cards properties and under TCP/IP properties ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked. Restart both pc's and the router, disconnect cable and try wirelessly

AOL DSL Plus


AOL DSL+ now uses PPPoE for authentication bypassing the client software. To set up your router: Step 1 Log into the web-based configuration of your router by opening a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape and enter the IP address of the router (192.168.0.1). Enter admin for username and then your password (blank by default). Configure the WAN side to use PPPoE. Please consult your manual for login instructions since all routers are not the same. Step 2 Enter your screen name followed by @aol.com for the user name. Enter your AOL password in the password box. Step 3 You will have to set the MTU to 1400. AOL DSL does not allow for anything higher than 1400. Step 4 Apply settings. Step 5 Unplug (turn off) the power to the modem and router. Wait 1 minute and then power on only the modem. Wait about 1 minute and then power on the router. NOTE: If you connect to the Internet with a different Internet service provider and want to use the AOL software, you can do that without configuring the router?s firewall settings. You need to configure the AOL software to connect using TCP/IP (LAN). Contact AOL for more specific configuration information of their software.
