Have searched and searched and plan to check router firmware next but what i can't find is a simple set up guide to connect to AOL without using it's software like there is for EVERY OTHER ISP arrrgghhhh
Anyway, AOL's loss of another customer as friend is ditching them ASAP.
Found some old notes I had. Might help. Screen name must be master account with+ 18 rating. Some Netgear settings; Basic setting Login - yes Encapsulation - PPPoE IP address - get dynamically from ISP. Domain name server - get automatically from ISP NAT - enable ADSL Settings Multiplexing method - LLC-BASED. VP1 0 VCI 38 DSL Mode - Auto(multi-mode) Wireless access point enabled. Apologies if already tried.
