Updated my AOL web browser to the latest 9.5, while at the same time i decided to go wireless.
Since then i am finding that web pages are slow to load and freeze. It is saying that the web page has loaded but i just get a blank screen. Left it for up to 30 minutes but still not loading or doing anything. Have to restart the computer to get it to work again !
The wireless signal is good.
Any suggestions ?

ya..dont use the AOL web Browser..get away from their proprietary crap and just utilize their internet access...

Use internet explorer or firefox.

yes, you can use any browser and still use your AOL connection...just minimize the AOL interface and launch the other browser. Not sure if this will fix you problem but its worth a try.

It could be due to your new wireless connection as well. In fact since you are connecting via a 3g wireless connection you wont need to start up AOL at all, your already connected to internet.

as far as your email, you can go here and still get it without launching AOL.
