AOL Problems Connecting To Specific Sites

  Jake_027 11:29 23 Feb 2008

Having been unable to access either youtube or photobucket since last night, I came accross click here this morning which is very interesting as I cannot access any of the sites mentioned in that thread. I'd be grateful if anyone else on here with AOL could check to see if they are having problems also, or whether it is an isolated case affecting only a few people.

Here are the sites I can't get to work

I am with AOL and can get all the sites you have listed.

There has been some talk about MTU settings with Talktalk and AOL click here

Try changing your MTU to 1432 and see if that helps.

Not an AOL problem, I think. All three sites connected and working.

AOL 9.0 XP Sp2 Netgear DG 834PN

Just a thought, and I really don`t know if it`s relevant or not but there is no need to run AOL 9.0VR with XP.

I believe it was introduced specifically for Vista and I suspect it might be the causing some curious and irritating problems which just don`t crop up with AOL 9.0 and XP.

I`m hesitating to post this but I think it might just be a possibility. Still no problems with those sites on my machine (3.50 pm)

You're most probably correct.

VR = Vista Ready and There is no need to run it with XP.
