    I thought the proxy was handled automatically by the dialer software.

    AOL's "internal" browser does not support proxy configuration.

    instead conect using Aol, then minimize it + use ie or some alternative where the proxy can be set.

    i don't have a high speed hook up. i don't have the proxy box checked, but it is still going through a proxy. it has 2 boxes to check,

    1. automatically detect settings.

    2. automatically configure settings.

    which do i put a check, or both?
    i tried neither and so many combinations i forget which all i tried.

    thanks for your help.
