Hi All, I am going through a lot of hassle with my internet connection at the moment, so I thought I would pass on some words of warning to those thinking of developing their systems. I have had Broadband from AOL since it became available last October and it has been working perfectly until the last couple of months or so. From October until this spring I connected via a BT Voyager 100 modem (supplied FOC by AOL), then I switched to a router (SpeedTouch 545 as recommended by AOL). The advantage of the router is that I can access the internet from any machine on my network (e.g. I can connect to FPI on one machine and have the Servinfo display on another), and my son, using a wireless link, can have internet access from his bedroom at the other end of the house. Recently we have seen a lot of down time on our line, and the service has gradually deteriorated. Frequent calls to the AOL help line have been fruitless, they have blamed the wiring in the house, which was done by BT, I called in BT and they claim the wiring is ok. I've been just caught in the middle. I should say that getting help from the AOL telephone support is like pulling teeth, the process is cluttered with recorded messages, and their help operators appear to work from scripts, rather than working through a logical trouble shooting process. This is probably ok for most of their calls, but no good for my troubles. This weekend I was so frustrated that I re-installed the BT Voyager Modem, and this is working just fine. I have now concluded that the Broadband signal level is such that it can be "seen" by the Voyager, but it can't be "seen" by the SpeedTouch 545. Note this happens on an intermittent basis, but the line can be down as seen by the router for days at a time. I have now got in touch with the SpeedTouch web site, giving them my symptoms. I'm hoping they may have a solution. Its taken 2 - 3 months to get this far, and I've effectively identified the problem by myself. This is after weeks of frustration with the AOL help system. Rant mode off. Now I've got a solid connection back I can catch up on my assignment. Frank T.
