After exactly 30 mins of being connected to AOL i get dissconected and my AOL fails to reconect , have tried live aol help and phoneing 3 times , have repaired and reinstalled the software still getting dissconected, the only way i can get back online is to restart the P.C, Does anyone have any suggestions???

I suggest your computer is dropping the connection. Look at your settings (cotrol panel - Internet - connection) and see if there is a time out. Set it to a stupidly large amount.
An alternative is that you are filling your cache. Have you an old computer, and what operating system are you using?

If you are using dial up this is a common problem with AOL. You need to switch to broadband for secure uplink. If you are already on Broadband, oops I wasn't much help.

Almost certainly your ISP is dropping you off, they are probably running short of bandwidth, I think it's called "shaping" where they limit your time on line. Tmac,s solution is the best if you're not already using broadband.

AOL do not limit clients time on line, if you want 24/7/12

Well back in business, the were some cable-connections problems, which are now cleared, it all had to do with speedlimit, that is been upgraded to 800KByte/sec.So everything is working as it should.(Thumb)
