    ok well here it goes. my cuzin is down at ISU and she cant connect to AIM. they r using a broadband connection and she has no problem connecting to AOL. she told me in order to connect to AIM she needs to connect to AOL first and then it will let her log onto AIM. i dont knwo y it does this. i only have 1 idea that i can ask her to try and that is to go under aim prefrences and see if she can try to find a new port to connect to. i had her laptop at my house the other day and i was using aim and i also have a broadband connection and i had no problems.

    any help would be greatly appreciated

    Thanx, Tom

    Instead of using AIM itself, use a third party program like Trillian and see if there's a connection issue.

    if shes got broadband she doesnt need to connect to aol...get trillian like ole beefy says or just get the aim client.

    another vote for 3rd party software here, I prefer Gaim myself, but Trillian is also quite good :thumb:

    Gaim can be found here:
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
