im kinda stuffed for dsl or cable till next month.
I run AOL dial up :( worst luck.

Now my problems are getting this damn PC to interface with AOL.
All i can use to post or send mail is AO goddam L.

The mad thing is the fact it worked to start off with. It has done so many times before as well.

AOL BS states that only there software will work and its a bonus if anything else does (eg OE6)

IT DID WORK !!! then packed up again.

Im so lost.

I try to hook a VPN into aol but nuttin.

it comes up with its own VPN every time i dial up but this always says "connecting"

I can surf fine but cannot post. I can read my mail online but cannot send.

OE6 just gave up on me again. when this works everything else seems to.

I got the damn thing going again somehow but i had a nasty HDD error and lost my partition (no ghost backup i know i know)

So here i am again. :(

Help me guys is there any 1 else out like me using AOL that had this problem

& any 1 without AOL with a wealth of networking knoledge please reply.

this is so tedious and i know its somthing real simple.

*sits in corner sobbing until he gets a reply.

Oh i gave up on firewalls since they all hate aol. I have "not" installed 1 on here since last format. and i aint clicked on the XP firewall either, so i havnt got stray .dll's blocking the connections..

(still confused)

Security is set very low. etc

what did i miss ??

oh AOL v7 latest update.

I no longer get a wan PPP/SLIP interface showing my connection speed like i used 2 just 2 10mb lan windows with the same info.

I so hate AOL but its the only 1 round here that lets me stay on 24/7

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
