AOL ANNOYANCES

AOL DIAL-UP DOESN’T SUPPORT MULTIPLE LOGONS

The Annoyance:

After the host computer logs on to AOL, users on the other computers get an error message that says the account is in use. What’s the point of a shared Internet connection if only one person can be online at any one time?

The Fix:

This annoyance is an AOL exclusive. However, with some versions of AOL, your client users might be able to get to the Internet after the user on the host computer has logged on to AOL. The logon to AOL establishes a network-wide Internet connection.

In this scenario, client users aren’t logged on to AOL, but they are physically connected to the Internet and can surf the Web. They have to use the version of Internet Explorer that comes with Windows instead of the AOL version of IE (which is a blessing, not a curse, because the AOL version of IE isn’t as good as the built-in version of IE).
