In a post yesterday i think, somone said you could access the net with AOL BB without starting up their browser/software?? If so, how is this possible?

Thought it might be usefull for online gaming, no superfluous connections!!

Apparently - according to an acquaintance - there is a dialler included in the new AOL software [v.9]due out about now.

... by going to Network Places - double-clicking the AOL BB modem (BT Voyager USB, or Globespan - whatever is your make and model) - then a dialog box shd appear - type in (username = your user name, of course), and fill-in the password in the other box beneath.... it shd work OK ... if not, try the AOL BroadBand NewsGroups.

and away you go.
