Hi there Vsz. Here use NTL and do not use a wireless router. Have you checked out the info given on the Linksys website for using with versions of AOL. Its listed on this website with several AOL links under the heading "Support Page Matches".

AOL don't support routers only known to them there
is suppose tobe info on this later in the year they said nothing as yet,take care you could be wasting a lot of money.

And if that link does not work then go onto the Linksys website and put the following in the search field
<<<<'wag54g compatibility with aol adsl broadband'>>>>. The link I gave doesn't seem to work using the Mozilla browser but it may with I.E.6.

The section you want is these links listed :-

Support Page Matches
BEFVP41 Cable/DSL VPN Router
AOL Cable Router Setup
AOL DSL Router Setup
AOL 8.0 Client BYOA & DSL Setup
AOL and Linksys Router FAQs
AOL 8.0 Client Cable Setup

but surely the linksys router will work?
Again has anyone been successful with this?

Thanks for your help, much appreciated!

Have you not checked anything out that relates to your router in the Linksys knowledge base?

One thing you can try is open the AOL icon and on the signup page set-up the location connection to "ISP LAN".

sorry rober, i didnt quite understand that advice, could you please explain again. what exactly am i changing?
