AOL Broadband Modem.

I am trying to help a colleague who has AOL Broadband. I have two questions if anyone can assist please.

1. Does any ADSL modem works with an AOL connection or does it have to be the AOL Broadband in a box modem.

2. Does the AOL Broadband in a box modem have both USB and Ethernet outputs.

Hi bremner, AOL normally offer the BT Voyager 100 USB modem for connecting to their Broadband service, though I believe they now also offer a router as well. j.

Thanks Djohn for that.

I've had a look and that modem seems only to have a USB output.

Yes, the Voyager 100 is USB only. j.

If I connect this click here to the modem will this enable me to then connect via ethernet to a router?

Following on from this - has anyone with AOL succesfully used a router other than AOL's recommended Speedtouch 570 to network AOL.
