Ive tried a wireless router with my three computers with AOL, but after it says congratulations, etc. it still does not work, this also happens with the other two D-Link routers, is compatability the issue? But i have heard that the AOL Router that is guaranteed also does not work. Any help would be nice.

Thanks, Paul :tazz:
