I am currently on AOL dial up and I am about to convert to AOL broadband (modem arrived). Anybody any tips to ensure smooth transition? Anything needing uninstalled, Windows XP tips, built-in dial up modem advice, firewalls? (I have ZoneAlarm but AOL give you Norton)

Hi marky no trouble setting broadband up the only thing is if you have trouble with the filters try different combinations. i had 3 filters in my box. only use one they say you have to have a filter on every phone but mine won`t work if i use more than one i have a 30ft extension plugged into my telephone socket in the hall,which goes into my bedroom a filter is plugged into that. The BB modem and a telephone and a backup 56k modem are plugged into the filter. everything works perfectly no hassle. I also have a phone in the living room no filter on that either. sam
