"the router is a trendnet tew-435brm wireless adsl modem and i have a bt voyager 1040 desktop adapter for my other pc.my internet connection has a bt voyager 105 modem. do i replace this with my wireless modem ??????????? im puzzled".
You don't need your BT Voyager 105 modem as the router has a modem built in.
The 1040 adapter goes in the second PC to receive internet through wireless.
For AOL you need to set up another screen name just for the router.
When the router is set up and switched on it will connect to AOL without the use of the PC.
You can then start either PC and you will already have the internet connection, if you want to log in to the AOL site you must use a different screen name to the router.
If you go to AOL home page - Keyword = router you should find info about setting up.
You will find that your router is not supported but this just means they won't help.
AOL should work with any router.
Hi, this is the info I got from aol for my wireless router,
Connection Protocol: PPPoA (VCMUX or VCBASED)
Username: your [email protected]
Password: your password
AOL then said this:- we recommend that you creat a new screen name which your router can use to connect to aol - because if you use your existing screenname from another location, your router will loose its connection to aol.
You must also follow the following rules:
1. The screenname must be entered in lower case letters.
2. your screenname must be in AOL e-mail format
3. your screenname must not contain any spaces
4. your screenname must have General (18+) Parental Access.
1. the password must be between Six to Eight characters long.
2. the password must contain letters and numbers only (no spaces)
3. the password must be in all lower case.
NOTE: the username is the name that you used to first register with AOL, and is usually at the top of the list of names.
I hope this helps, I have wrote this exactly as I received it from AOL.
ty to all who helped me with my problem ty
