I have just gone onto broadband not wanting to pay out anymore money on a router i had a spare D Link 200 modem yes this one works very well with AOL as you can change the VCI settings,i found you could leave both connected and go from one computer to another PROVIDING YOU TURNED THE OTHER OFF AT THE POWER SOCKET and not leave it in standby it worked fine.
Comments on the forum in the past gave the impression you couldn't do this with ADSL modems.

Hello gold 47.

I think what was meant was that you couldn't have two connections at the same time. I've done the same as you in the past to save unplugging the modem and taking it downstairs.

I think you answered this yourself.

PROVIDING YOU TURNED THE OTHER OFF AT THE POWER SOCKET and not leave it in standby it worked fine.

Without any power the modem won't work

2 modems connection with power = trouble
