Why does it not surprise me that the problem only occurs when the computer 
is connected to/through AOL.  My money says the problem is either a benefit 
designed to make AOL so simple that anyone can use it or is a problem 
created by one of those benefits.... most likely a server level security 
related benefit.  I would check with AOL to see if there are any user 
settings on those types of benefits that might fix the problem.

I would think that a faulty modem or other external hardware device would 
block ALL data, not just some.  But you might check the configuration of the 
modem and router/filter/whatever.  It could be locking down certain ports 
that certain data transfers use.

I would not suspect any user installed security software on the computer, at 
least not yet, since it works fine on your access point.
