AOL Internet Connection Problems

Apologies if my description is a bit vague, but a mate in work has AOL as his ISP and says that approx every 10 minutes his system either trips back to the connect / sign on screen or in some cases the screen just freezes completely, which results in a reboot. Any thoughts on what could be the problem would be much appreciated.

if there are incoming calls it could disconnect your server

As far as I am aware the connection is a regular phone line, but with it happening on a regular frequency it suggests that it isn't incoming calls.

You could try and uninstall the adapter and reload it as some times this gets a bit confused like me.

Has he cleared his cache from system file this will allow it to connect smoothly.

try diffrent log on numbers to see if you get a better connection.

Is is machine the first connection on the line as aditional phones tend to play tricks with connections

My PC also disconnext randomly from AOL and "connection lost" appears.
All AOL can tell me is to try different connection numbers.
My previous service provider did not cause this problem (same PC, same modem, same phone line)
Is it, perhaps, something perculiar to AOL?
I have a friend who also shares the same problem.
