    Yes I have wireless and am connected. But the only thing AOL is offering is dial up, it's NOT offering wireless option.

    so its more about the packages available to you from ISPs
    as AOL does work in broadband
    You would normally just connect to a Router which would have a modem incorporated or separate and that should handle the log in to the ISP - and most ISP work the same way

    As i'm not a Mac expert - perhaps its something you are trying to set up on the PC

    if you use comcast then thats how you would get access to the internet

    so is the AOL to be able to read email - Not sure I understand the AOL question

    just confirm

    you have comcast as the internet provider
    They have given you - or you use a wireless router and you can access the internet on your mac book

    so what are you doing with AOL - setting up the mail service

    AOL use
