    HI
    Hope you can help with this.
    I am helping friend setting up her internet connection on her PC.
    she'c connected to AOL for wireless broadband provision.
    the control panel/network connection says we have broadband both when
    connected via cable or wireless, however we can access IE only when the cable
    is plugged in.
    any idea what is going on? we followed the advice from AOL but I am getting
    a bit frayed but their excuses.... i.e. not an aol issue...
    hope you can help
    Thanks

  2. Hi
    Try to disable the wire and see if the Wireless "kicks" in.
    Otherwise use this process to make sure that the Wireless actually works.
