I have 2 internet connection problems.
1. My AOL is disconnecting or not connecting at all. My modem seems to be working, but I have also tried to log on with an external modem I had borrowed. The results are the same. The AOL mostly doesn't connect at all with various messages such as "cannot find modem" or "AOL unable to connect". When it does connect, it is either for a very short period of time(5-10 min) and disconnects. This was not a problem until last week when I got a blue screen shutdown error. The phone line is not the problem, as I am able to connect using a friend's laptop.
2. When I am able to connect, my Firefox cannot open any pages. I get a "..... could not be found" message. I have been trying out the Avant browser, and that runs sometimes and other times it does not.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
