Getting booted off the internet

  mEmo99 20:58 25 Jan 2006

I've got AOL broadband (1mb) and tqo wireless laptops. When i'm logged on with either laptop and surfing and the other laptop is then used and logs on to the internet, the laptop that was logged on first is kicked off the internet.

Any ideas?

Are you using the second laptop just for internet access in conjunction with a program such as Internet Explorer, Outlook Express etc, or are you trying to log in to AOL twice with a single screen name, because that isn't allowed?

That'll be it! I'll have a butchers on AOL and sort the other screen names...
thank you for your help, you wouldn't be able to help with the other problem i'm having would you?
my third laptop can connect to my broadband wirelessly or with a cable, but i can't get anything on internet explorer, i can't even connect to the IP address of the netgear modem router. My other laptops can though...
