Calling all users of wireless AOL (Gold)!!!!!

by The Nightingale / January 16, 2006 12:49 AM PST

Hey there!!

A member of my family has suggested we upgrade to the AOL wireless gold package ( we already have dial up) however, I'm a little worried about something. As far as I'm aware to do so you have to network both PC's, my brother will also use the wireless package once we set up the shared connection.

My question is will this allow my brother to hack into my system and see what I'm doing online?? I don't want my privacy taken away from me, but then again it will be hard to tell my family that. He's quite nosey so would probably take advantage of that fact.

If your already have the AOL gold package could you please let me know the answer to my question?

Thanks a lot
