AOL has proprietary software that will not work with any other provider.

There is hard coding within, that is specific to AOL, and sadly, that is one of the biggest (in my view) downfalls to the AOL service.

Confirm that the "Connect using" box in dial-up networking properties is configured to connect using one of the two ISDN line drivers.

If it is and you are unable to establish a connection with your ISP, go to Start - Settings - Control Panel - Modem and select Add. Leave the "Do not search for a modem" box unchecked and select Next.

Windows will communicate and query the two ISDN com ports and eventually return with a message saying "found Standard modem" on the ISDN port. You should select "change - have disk" and browse the appropriate path on the driver CD: Perhaps, x:\card\win9S or x:\card\win98. Click OK and a list of ISDN models will be displayed.

For internet or remote server connection it is advised to use ISDN (Internet PPP 64k) adaptor. Repeat this process for the second ISDN com port.

Now configure the "Connect using" box in Dial-up networking properties to connect using one of the two installed ISDN com ports.

I will try what you said and a big thankyou for your reply.
I did the windows search but left it as standard I will try the configuation you sugested.
I have tryed to update drivers from Bona-uk site. and that got me a little closer than i had been before.
Once again Thanks

Tryed it no luck it kept telling me that The location specified did not contain information about this device.
So I specified device and it came up, installed drivers and then it went back and did another search and I did a full cicle and still it does not detect in modems.
I did the direct dial up and it said could not start modem and failed however when i useed Freeserve it goes straight on,
How it works for one but nowt else
Thanks anyway

Open up Dial up networking and click on "Make New Connection.

Enter the data for AOL (telephone number etc) and click OK. Make sure it is "bound" to your ISDN card.

Now use the Dial Up Networking Icon to connect.

sorry for delay had to go to bed lol,
been in it, cannot activate isdn card?
even when i specify all settings.
Its got to be something to do with AOL software as you said but cannot get my head round how it works for one thing but not AOL and yet the AOL software supports ISDN? I keep getting error code 691 & 629 but cannot find out what these codes mean.
Thanks for all your help I will keep trying to figuire it out :)

My friend had this problem, we solved it by uninstalling AOL, re-boot, re-installing AOL from free disk from store.
