AOL have a freephone number try that first...but I believe (maybe incorrectly) you will have to install AOL on the other PC's.

thanx andy, already done that but you can only log onto one aol at a time, i was trying to use ie as a share but it still requires aol to start up.

Don't think AOL will allow you to do this, as they don't use a normal dial up connection. You may be able to use a Proxy sever though/

From the broadband help files. Sorry doesn't look as though you can. j.


While we are not currently able to support home networking with AOL Broadband, AOL is committed to developing solutions for the home that work across multiple devices and platforms.

We are very excited about the potential for home networking to help your family take full advantage of broadband connections.

We'll keep you updated on future developments.
