A while back i saw on a thread on here about using AOL broadband without installing the software,Can anyone tell me if they've tried this and there opinion about it,Have there been and problems,If so what are they,Also a complete tutorial of how it's done would be great.
@jc. if you click on the yellow envelope next to "The Sack's" name in the thread from my link, your mail will go direct to him instead of the forum.
I'm sure he will not mind if you approach him in a polite manner. He will receive your mail containing your private e-mail address and he can answer you direct or via the forum.
If he replies via the forum it may be to the other thread so keep your eye on both. If he replies in private with guide-lines on how to do it then maybe you will be kind enough to post your results back to the forum for others to see.
I would not normally advise direct contact but this is an exceptional case in the sense that very few members will have tried this method of running AOL to date.
As JerryJay says in the post above, it does seem quite straightforward and I can see no problems that you will encounter.
You will be connecting direct to AOL without all the software installed so your connection will work just as if you were connecting to any one of the other ISP's that don't require software content. j.
Thank Djohn and jerryjay ,I've searched this alot and cannot get a straight answer,i don't have a router so can not try jerryjays way,I saw i another forum that this was not possible and am just wanting someone who has achieved this to comfirm it work's with no problems atached.
The guy in the other forum said it was possible to connect maybe,but you would not be able to surf.
I'm not going to try it till someone can confirm it does work.
It certainly sound like it could but would like more details.
