    Hi All

    My girlfriend is on the old £17.99 (2MB) AOL Broadband package. I want to setup a wireless router but am a bit worried they will cut us off for using multiple screen names. I see that they do a £14.99 wireless package so wondered if they allow wireless on all their packages now??

    I use wireless on AOL, I believe you need to be on at least the gold package under their terms (not sure what they actually do if you hook it up on the lowest package).

    Edit: was just looking at their site and it seems all broadband packages now offer "Connect multiple PCs with home networking support"

    You can create up to 8 screen names for access to the AOL software via the master screen name.

    Just grab the wireless router and you should have basic net access. If you want to log onto AOL software for any reason (emails etc) then just setup a new connection via TCP/IP and enter the new screen names. :)
