Noebook wireless connection to AOL ISP.

by jenispiel / November 25, 2004 10:03 AM PST

I just received a Dell notebook Inspiron 8600 notebook. I am not computer literate, other than using excel, outlook, word and programs at work. I am connected to AOL on my home computer by dial up modem through phone lines. How can I access AOL on notebook through wireless connection? I have displayed below the printout of what came with this Dell package if you can understand it...I can't! Please, I would appreciate some help with this!

Notebook Wireless connection to AOL

jenispiel..if you find any information on this please let me know. I just received a wireless notebook for my birthday and have been trying to find someone to help me as well. Even the tech for AOL couldn't tell me anything. And if I find something out I will let you know.

How can I access AOL on notebook through wireless connection

"How can I access AOL on notebook through wireless connection?"

And you only have dialup access...

I offer no support, but the Apple Airport with it's modem might be able to do this.
