  1. :bounce: I can access the Internet through my AOL icon but not through my Internet Explorer. None of my software can recognize that I have access to the Internet so alot of my software doesn't work properly. What can I do to access my Internet Explorer through AOL?

    Try right clicking on the IE icon, left click "Properties," left click "Connections," make sure your AOL connection is listed, make it your default connection and check the button "Always dial my default connection."

    If you click the AOL icon, dial and login, you can minimize it, ignore it, and then
    use ANY Internet software you please. You're using AOL to create the link
    to the ISP and that's all you need :)
