Have ya tried looking in the device manager? Look there just to see if your modem and network card show up.

Ben,

With TCP/IP you can logon to AOL with either, your phone connection or your ethernet connection.

Ben,

I don't know how is it is now, but when I had AOL there were 2 ways to connect and login. 1. Have a dialup connection straight in to them off one of their phone numbers or BYOP (I think it was)
Bring Your Own Provider. This could be anything--dialup, DSL, Cable. To use this, there needs to be in Network Neighborhood,
AOL adapter and AOL TCP/IP. And the setup in AOL needs to correspond to the fact you are BYOP.

I remember it was easy to set up and use.
