    Well several questions including one that you should have said from the
    start.

    The first question you should have answered from the start is, what
    operating systems are involved, on the computers that can't connect to
    the Internet?


    The second question you should have answered from the start is, what
    error message are you getting, on the computers that can't connect to
    the Internet?


    The third question you should have answered from the start is, are the
    computers involved connecting via a wired connection or wireless, on the
    computers that can't connect to the Internet?


    The forth question you should have answered from the start is, how are
    you sharing the files & programs, on the computers that can't connect to
    the Internet? (File & printer sharing or some sort of a P2P program.)


    The forth question you should have answered from the start is, who is
    your ISP? (This is because some ISP's will not allow you to connect
    more then one computer to the Internet even with a router without paying
    extra fees, AOL is known to do this.)


    Now some new questions.

    Have you enabled client filtering on the MN-500?


    Have you enabled MAC filtering on the MN-500?


    Do the following & post the results.

    1) Go to start | run | type in "command" (without the quotes) | click on
    OK. (No results from this other then a black Windows opens up.)

    2) Type in "ping www.google.com" (without the quotes) & press enter


    3) Type in "ping www.homestead.com" (without the quotes) & press enter


    4) Type in "ping 216.239.57.99" (without the quotes) & press enter (this
    is www.google.com)


    5) Type in "ping 209.157.71.50" (without the quotes) & press enter (this
    is www.homestead.com)

    The Microsoft hardware doesn't support sharing an AOL connection.

    You should take the hardware back to where you bought it or better yet
    change to a real ISP instead of AOL.

    This is because AOL refuses to use the standard TCP/IP stack.

    So your choices are either get one of the few routers that is compatible
    with AOL or change ISP's to anything other then AOL.
