A mate has started having trouble making a connection to the net. He keeps getting the error : Your connection to the AOL server was interrupted because your network connection stopped responding 24-04-08-041
He has checked all the usual - leads etc.
I haven't been to check the pc yet, but will do in the next few days.
AFAIK, he is using a USB ADSL modem supplied by AOL and has been with them for the past year with no problems.
