    just had the aol modem dropped off, and im without the setup disc(ive got to wait 5 days for!)
    is there anyway i can set up my connection without having the cd? ive got my account details such as pin and username etc.
    and do you always have to connect through aol software on the pc? or can i get away with not installing it?

    cheers
    :)

    no AOL have there own devil spawned way of setting up there connections. They use proxy connections and I doubt that you have enough info to set it up manually.

    You can usually nip down to Tesco's or Asda and pick up an AOL CD.
