    I have been having several problems with AOL 8.0 running with win98. I have reinstalled both and now AOL will not detect my Best 56K V.92/V.44 PCI modem. I ran auto fix to no avail. It all began when Aol would not connect t the internet. I see by other threads that this is a long standing problem with AOL 8.0
    I was able to log on to AOL then I ran the auto fix. It deleted all connection devices then could not find it again. I called AOL help they suggested to run the webutil7 patch but I have to be able to connect first, HELP.

    Enter the Dial-Up Networking (DUN) Control Panel; Right-click the AOL icon there; Point to Properties; Use the drop-down arrow under the 'Connect using' heading to choose the target Modem you desire. Click the OK button. Close Control Panel.

    Now try to connect with AOcrap. :D I help AOL Victims, I mean Users, ;), a lot in person.

    Seriously try the fix above, I've fixed connectivity issues just like yours for AOL Users.

    For questions or concerns reply to this.

    Best advise for AOL victims, get a real ISP.

    Thanks STYXX I will give it a try. It's nice to know there are fellow Hawkeyes to help those that have left the state. Not to mention one that uses the name of the best band to come out of Chicago.
