wireless through aol

  [DELETED] 16:43 19 Feb 2006

just got a d-link dsl 904 wireless internet bundle and want to connect to the internet through my laptop. i do not have another pc in the house (just my laptop) connected the router to the phone line and put the dongle into the usb on the laptop. laptop shows there is a good connection but i cant get onto aol. i think it is either the aol settings that i need to change. or does the router need to be connected to another pc?

can anyone help

Have You Visited the Router Control Panel?

Just like when you setup your computer with a ADSL Modem you need to tell it your ISP Details.

Best bet is to find the Instruction Manual or Quick Start Guide and it should thoroughly explain the Router Configuration Process :)

If you need any help or get stuck, post back

vague memories but I think you need to configure the router with the ethernet cable connected to your laptop.
