Aol connection problem

  DMAN 15:31 23 Jul 06


Really weird problem I have with my aol broadband gold connection. Everytime I try to connect it gets to stage 5 in the connection process and then stops giving some message that it is unable to connect.

I unistalled the software and then reinstalled it and it worked. I could connect. The problem occurs though when I try to reconnect. It will again hang in stage 5 giving the same message. It is strange that I the only way i can make it work is by reinstalling the software each time.

Any help would be appreciated.

There was a widespread problem with AOL on Sunday affecting many users in the way you describe.
All seems back to normal today though.

Same here, my download speed was slower than my upload speed yesterday.Bit fed up with AOL at the moment thinking of migrating to zen.

The problem was cot confined to AOL, virtually all isp's were having the same problem. Orage was affected as was talktalk that I know of and BT Yahoo.

Surmise the cause to be either the unusually high temps we are having causing server probs or a malicious DOS attack! Though I could be wrong, lol.
