I keep getting "Connection Timed Out" or "Unable to Connect" Messages, is it the server to blame or how can speed it up?

Any particular site ?

Hi Rob. I doubt that Firefox is the problem. Go to Control panel, Network Connections. Right click on the connection you use and select "Connect". This should then connect you computer to your ISP. If it doesn't then the problem is between your modem and your ISP.

Hi, this happens if I enter any site and I always tap in the right addy.

Hi Gongoozler - as my ISP is AOHell I think this is the problem, I have a Netgear DG834 Router and AOhell is driving me mad!!!

Thanks

Rob

If I phone AOL can I obtain a Mac Code to go elsewere??

Yes and you may get a better offer! If you connect via a modem, though, can I suggest you try the new ACS beta found here click here It might work. If you have a router it may be the settings, try right clicking the connections icon in system tray and click repair.

Hi Rdave13

I don't use any AOL Software to connect, I connect though my Router, If requested a Mac Code from them would they charge me any extra for broadband service???

Thank you

Rob

If you wish to change ISP's then just phone AOL for the code. First though I'd "shop" around for another ISP and browse this forum for posts about various other internet providers. I'm connected via netgear DG834G v3 and have no problems at all. I've been with AOL for quite a number of years and they're as good as the next I believe.

If you are not tied to a 12 month contract then you only need to ask for the MAC code and tell them that you're changing ISP.
Try checking your router's settings,.
