Connection to access provider
Connection speed: 57600
It just hangs there. Eventually it drops the connection (I listened on the phone). Does anyone have any ideas? I tried using the GUI to connect and basically got to the same point. I don't like using the GUI because the screen looks distorted (I can't see the whole thing for some reason, and when I resize it, it just goes back).
I never could get pengaol to work.... When I was useing it.. it would connect with no problem.... then after you would try to access anything you would get dropped. a ping to aol.com after connecting would terminate the connection.
Luckily, DSL became available in my area...
I would honestly suggest finding an alternative dial-up provider Try your phone company.
