One important thing is that you must assign a new screen name for the router in lower case with the @ aol . com after it with password. The screen name must have General (18+) access in AOL's parental controls. Create this screen name before installing the router of course. Install using the ethernet cable.
Some settings if you might try to set up manually,
Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > Local Area Connection > Properties > (select) Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) > Properties > (tick) Obtain Ip address automatically + Obtain DNS server address automatically
Hopefully that works not sure.... If not, ohwell :D
