And the official AOL version click here Note that the MTU settings appear to be back to 1400 but your router may be set to automatic which I would leave it at unless you have problems.

Hi There Ditch, thanks for your help thus far. I followed the instructions and it almost wants to connect to AOL, however I am now receiving an error on AOL which reads, 47-DUN-0678 0x8410101E. When attempting to connect via AOL, it does not get past part one of the initializing process. Any more ideas. Because this item is a modem router, I am trying to connect to the internet via this modem.

Do you by any chance have another modem or router connected to your phone line? You can only have one per phone line.

HI Ditch, no there is not another modem connected. All I have done is take the DSL cable from the back of the AOL modem and put it in the new one. I have also disconnected the AOL USB cable from the back of the PC when I try to load through the new modem.
Obviously, I have to reconnect through my AOL modem etc in order to have this conversation.

If you are using IE go to Tools > Options > Connections and make sure never dial a connection is selected. You can also go to LAN settings and try ticking Automatically detect settings.

Hi ezeman67, just wondered if you are attempting to connect via usb.. You say you are using a modem router ,why not via Ethernet ?? Just a thought
