    Question is how can i share AOL dsl connection? i configured the network and it's is working , using a LINKSYS {EthernetFast Cable dsl router} but the internet connection doesnt work.
    the modem that i use is WESTELL... i installed aol 6.0 and it will work only if i change WAN --> TO the UPLINK {modem connection} This router can share 4 computers, it has WAN port and a UPLINK Port.. according to the installation manual the modem cable is supposed to go to the WAN Port. And also i called the TECH support, they went through some installation procedures..
    Lan Ip address
    Wan IP Address---obtain address automatically
    The problem that i'am having is through their router setup screen when i check for to connnect it gives me an error saying that autentication failed. according to tech support they told me that it's the user name and password {aol}.. i put the same sn and pswd which i use for aol, used my other one's, same error.
    Tech support told me to enable PPPoE
    under there i put the User name and password for aol. above--^ ERROR

    if u have any tip that u can give me i would appreciate it...
    thank you,
    e-mail me at [email protected]:confused:
