[FONT=Arial][COLOR=purple]Hi! My AOL is connecting at 264000 every time! Grrr! It was connecting at 45000-50000 until the last few days. Nothing works to correct it. I have a brand new Dell. Any ideas? Thanks! :tazz:

If you are sure there is nothing wrong with the modem installation then you need to ask AOL why it is so slow

I dislike aol very much. I dont even use their browser anymore. I connect through pppoe. the speed is pretty consistently high and it makes me happy without all the junk that aol tries to give you. :tazz:
