    Hi. I just went through the ringer trying to get my aol connection settings redone. They finally told me I would have to call Systemax, and get a TCPIP spacks rebuild.........how do they figure this out....is it for real? Is it just a run around......I am getting back online but a little slower....should i change back the settings the way I had them before the problem?

    in "network properties" from the control panel, remove the microsoft client and all instances of tcp-ip even the ones that may be related to another device.
    REBOOT
    re-install Microsoft client and TCP-IP.
    Yes, sorry REBOOT again.

    you install/uninstall them in the properties of the connection you're using. when they are uninstalled, the computer needs to be rebooted in order to rid itself of all the nastiness AOL installs on your computer. after reboot, go back to the same screen and click "install..." button. you'll have to install each item again, once for the TCP/IP _PROTOCOL_ and another time for the _CLIENT_. Hope this helps.
