Default AOL, Without the software.

OK guys, I'm back in with my parents during the hols, and I need a bit of a help with software.

I'm using AOL, and I don't want to use their software. I'm currently using the AOL Dialer, but IMHO it's still over bloated, erm, bloatware. lol. I'm using the standard BT Voyager 100 USB modem on a 1MB ADSL connection.

I've tried a few tutorials I've found by googling, but the closest I get wont authenticate me. I just want the connection to go through like any other normal internet/network connection through Windows, and no 3rd party software what-so-ever.

Anyhelp would be great.

Default Re: AOL, Without the software.

I acctually did this once!! Download the drivers from the BT website, and install them. You shold get a icon on your desktop, somthing about connecting. Now, double click on it, and as your username, type your AOL Username, then after it, type in @aol.com. Then type in your password. that SHOULD Work. Good Look (btw, i like + rep )
