Aol Broadband - Wireless Networking
Posted on 2004-08-06
Ive been asked to purchase and setup a wireless network for the purpose of sharing a
broadband connection. The ISP is AOL. I understand that AOL can be a bit of a pig to set up.
I need to buy a wireless 54mbps (minimum) modem/router and a 54mbps notebook card for the
laptop. AOL tell me that they support Tompson Speedtouch modem/routers.
Is this possible to set up with AOL being the ISP?
What equiptment is know to work and is compatible with AOL Broadband?
What configuration settings will be required ie, vpi/vci, encapsulaion, pppoe or pppoa etc
