Tried calling AOL helpdesk but I don't think they understood the problem, they advised me to contact my PC vendor. Tried pk470's suggestion and selected AOL UK broadband but it still gives me an IP address beginning 195.93.21 which according to several sources indicates that I'm in Brooklyn. I've looked out the window and it still looks like Essex to me.
Uninstall AOL modem and unplug on reboot do a search for AOL and delete these files reboot and reinstall the modem again,at a lose why your modem seems tobe set at USA,CHECK YOU HAVE NOT GOT A ROUGH DIALER ON YOUR COMPUTER.
Done all that, modem reinstalled OK but couldn't get AOL to load, kept wanting to load connection files then asking if I want to restsrt now or later if you don't restart AOL terminates then restarts and the same thing happens again. I have a small home network so I will see if I can get the modem/phone connection to one of the other PCs so I have an internet connection till I resolve the problem on the other PC.
As you can see by this message I'm up and running on the other PC new install of both adsl modem and Aol but my IP adress is still 195.93.21.xxx. I'm beginning to think that it must be generated by the AOL server irrespective of your geographical location.
