Authentication failed means bad username or password.  I doubt 2 routers would be having problems.. Call them back and have them give you the correct information.

ahh, so you have a modem and a router.

well here is the thing.  PPPoE will only need to be setup on the modem.  Then you can plug the router into the modem (WAN port of the router into the ethernet port of the modem).

This should work without a hitch.  The router will pull and IP from the modem and does not need to have PPPoE setup.

One more question:
If you have JUST the voyager connected can you access the internet (without the router involved),

If you just got AOL Platinum service and their support can not help you get it online I would scrap the AOL service.  It is clearly and authentication problem and that is nothing anyone here is going to be able to help you with.  So in my eyes you have 2 options.


1) Go back to your old service that was working

2) Call AOL and demand that they give you support since your paying for their service
