Random AIM disconnect\reconnects

  1. I previously had SBC DSL, and for about two months now have been with Time Warner cable. Ever since the switch in providers, AIM randomly disconnects and then reconnects again. Never happened with DSL. Here is the info:

    - Happens several times an hour, each hour.
    - Re-installing AIM did nothing.
    - I am on a network with two computers, and two lab tops.
    - The computers are hard-wired together for connectivity, while the lab tops are wireless.
    - The router is a Linksys WRT100 Rangeplus Router.

    Any ideas\suggestions?

    Use another IM for AOL like GAIM or PIDGIN these are freeware programs and don't hose the system like AOL does.
