I'm guessing that that your problem is no PTR entry (or reverse entry).
Come back with the exact nature of your problem, as in -- what are you trying to do -- and if I'm still here I will try to help.
Going out soon when everyone is ready, 'tis Saturday lol.
AOL is a great ISP but that is what it is, an ISP just like any other.
They (the help people?)do not know much about computers, never mind routers etc. If you ask them about a problem with one computer connected to AOL they will likely find an answer on a cure-all flowchart somewhere. What you are attempting is probably outside if their remit and that is why they cannot help. Not their problem really, when all said and done ... as with any other ISP.
hi there thanks for reply , the exact problem is as follows , upon trying to connect to aol (after installing router software ) aol keeps coming up with error message "unable to connect to dns server" on looking into setup of router the dns addy is all 0's so was looking for correct setting for aol
i do have that setting yes but all of the literature on cd that came with router says pppoa it even uses pppoa when you chose aol (in its setup) i can customise the settings yes so i will give pppoe a go. thanks for that if it works i,ll let you know
thank you all for advice i have since been onto the makers of the router and apparently it will not work with aol as it does not accept dynamic ip addys (why on earth they put aol as an option in setup is beyond me) still they have said i can return it and they will send me one that aol reccomends which will work and at no extra cost to myself. nice of them really seeing as the new one is £15 more and they dont even want postage for it. again thanks for your replies they were appreciated.
