AOL only available
« on: May 01, 2004, 07:55:06 AM »
we have 2 computers in the house, my brother's (who he makes sure no one touches) and the living room computer (everyone else uses). We have DSL which is mainly connected to my brother's computer since he's the materialistic techie.

Recently, the living room computer's internet connection didn't work, which created many problems. After my mom used some of her parental powers to make my brother fix it, the internet connection is back online. Drawback is that I can only connect to AOL and AIM if I am on AOL at the same time and nothing else---no Mozilla, no Internet Explorer, and no...um... music engines.

Anyone know what's wrong and what a person with hardly any knowledge of computer hardware can do?

By the way, the computer techi could care less of the family's computer problems. Getting help from him is pretty close to impossible.
