I was once a numpty
Now Ex AOL, the reasons being.
Crap software, thankfully you didn't need to actually use it or even touch it after installing the router
Having sold off AOL in the UK to carphone warehouse (Talk Talk) they then gave "free" bandwidth to their customers for nothing, so the people subscribing to AOL in the UK were paying for someone else to use up bandwidth. Less bandwidth means instigating an un"fair use" policy to cap use. No limit given that you are not allowed to go over, no warnings that you are about to go over the limit that you aren't allowed to know what it is then 1 month of reduced bandwidth 4.5Mb down to 36K.....for a month during peak hours(7am-12pm) whilst still paying for 4.5Mb. they don't even tell their own support people they have done it, took me about 3 or 4 hours on the phone with tech support about my slow connection to find out I had been "fair used"
Now paying half as much for twice the speed and no poxy viruslike software, with a limit of 100Gb of bandwidth a month...sorted
