Extra dsl modem on AOL

  chriscross72 20:59 01 Jul 2004

I currently have AOL broadband using a BT Voyager 105 usb modem
Is it possible to use any dsl type modem to access the internet or do I have to use the one that AOL supplied me with ?
Thanks : ))

In general you can use any ADSL modem, but I can't say if AOL is different.

AOL supply a USB modem in the forlorn hope that you do not use it (the connection) for more than one PC. When I wuestioned AOL I was told I need not use the supplied modem.

""wuestioned"" - damn, hit w instead of q. Sorry, ... questioned AOL ...

so i can have any dsl modem on my machine-with the correct drivers loaded- and I will be able to connect to AOL through it ?
Will i need to remove the drivers for the BT voyager modem first ( We can then leave one modem downstairs for laptop use and the other upstairs for the main pc)

Yep, remove drivers first. Don't forget the ADSL splitter in the phone socket downstairs. Also don't forget that a phone line can only have equipment totalling 4 REN. (most modems and phones are 1 REN
