Hi all.

I am currently in the US of A atm, and I have a laptop here with AOL 9.0 on it using a 56k dial up network connection. I want to share this connection to a few PSPs (play station portables) and another laptop (yes, I know its crazily slow, but we are trying out some low bandwidth stuff.

I have created a Wi-Fi ad-hoc network, and supposedly "shared my internet connection", and I can get the computer to join wirelessly, but with no internet connectivity, I believe this is because of AOL hiding the modem. I have attempted to run "Network Setup Wizard", but to find that the dial up modem still does not display. Is there a way I can show this again to share the connection, or another way to share the connection, or alternatively a FREE 56K dial up connection (for the Georgia state) number, usr + pass.

Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated,
