There is something sinister at work here, and people should complain very bloody loudly at Microsoft for as long as it takes.
I too fell for the 'Its a breeze to set up..' senario, only to find that A: it was NOT a breeze and B: The only wind you are likley to feel when setting up is a hurricane of utter disappointment.
Begging the question : Do Microsoft belive that everyone who buys their over-rated white elephant, is either proficient in all things network based and have enough disposable income to have wireless everything and superfast top of the pile internet connection, or in fact AOL doesnt exisit?!
Iam on sodding AOL silver with a twatty little BT Voyager 190 which pretends to be broadband but in fact is nothing of the sort, and consequently DOES NOT WORK!!
Thanks Gates you f..king c..t, thanks for the disappointment, the money wasted and the time spent sitting waiting for your useless Customer Support to answer the fekking phone, only to be redirected to chuffing AOL.
And all because I belived the advertising........
What happened to the halcyon days of the Sega Dreamcast...1 lead 1 phone socket and you were away.
Quake III online? No problem (apart from a bit of lag)
Gates, and all the marketing, research and design bods take note, you have overcomplicated an easy process with coporate ineptitude and, as usual, let us pay the price.
That said, does anyone actually know how to use a Netgear Wireless router in conjuction with AOL broadband silver, if so I would be so gratful it cant be imagined : )
