Has anyone had a problem getting the information from Aol to set up a new modem. I have bought a lanksys wireless router which needs an ethernet cable from the modem. When I phoned Aol, for the information, they said they don't support wireless networking. Is there any way around this, or do I have to wait until I can cancel and go to another Isp?
I'm getting slightly confused. I was told I needed to get, I think, an ip address for the modem from AOL for the router to work, which they won't give out. So, without this how do I set up the router to work?
To find out what your IP Address is, follow the instructions below: Note: You need to be online to do this.
For Windows 95, 98 or ME 1. Click the Start button and then on Run 2. Type WINIPCFG and press the ok button 3. At the top of the window select either of the 'PPP Adaptor' entries (If using a version of AOL prior to version 7 select either the 'AOL Adaptor' or the 'AOL Dial Up Adaptor'.) 4. The IP Address and DNS Address will be identified below the Adaptor list.
For Windows 2000 or XP 1. Click the Start button and then on Run 2. Type CMD and press ok 2. Type IPCONFIG and press the Enter key on the keyboard 4. Your IP Address will be contained in the list of information that comes up.
