    i'm trying to help my friend setup her dialing properties so that it disables call waiting when she dials her internet connection, but i'm unfamiliar with xp. she uses aol as her browser, and she has xp pro.

    She'll have to obtain the number to call for her area from aol. It's likely on their website.

    This should help too. Substitute Tiscali for aol:
    http://www.tiscali.co.uk/help/connectionsettings/winxp_scratch.html When she reaches "Phone number to dial" type in the number she obtained from aol.

    Example: If the number is 123-456, type in "*70,123456" (no quotes).

    If it's long distance, she'll need to type in the area code first.
    Example: "*70,999123456".

    Try this. Select "Start > Settings > Control Panal" in Control Panal open "Phone and Modem Options" select the dialing rules tab, select your location and then click on edit. At the bottom of the edit page, put a check in "To disable Call Waiting, dial" and to the right of that box, click the dropdown and select *70. Now select "OK" and "OK" to close.
    That's it your done.

    BTW: That's one good lookin kid you have there.

    if she already has access numbers on AOL, then on the sign on screen click on setup->expert setup->double click on one number and in the dit number screen at the bottom there will be an option for Dial *70.
    Check it.

    Just another reason to hate SOL!!!

    Here's another ...

    Several years ago I was visiting my father-in-law and wanted to check my email. I signed on to SOL and minimized their clunky interface. I opened internet explorer and got a cannot find server error. Thinking that the network configuration may need tweaking, I went there and found that TCP/IP was not even installed!!!! Everyone in the universe uses TCP/IP except SOL. They also don't support HTML 5 or the JPEG format (based on the last information that I've seen.) They convert JPEGs to their own proprietary image format and in the process lose a lot of color depth and image detail.

    AOL = SOL

    (If any of this information is out of date, I apologize.)

    On the AOL toolbar click settings->preferences->internet properties(www)->web graphics tab->select 'never compress graphics'->apply->ok.

    Now get the JPEG's that u want !


    You definetely need to update your information.
