LOL... Find out from your ISP if they


Learned something today...

""
    If you have a dial-up connection to the Internet or are using a computer that gets connected to the Internet intermittently, you're most likely picking up a dynamic IP address from a pool of possible IP addresses at your Internet service provider's network during each login.

 
If you think you have a dynamic IP address, you should ask your network administrator or Internet service provider for the range of IP address that your computer could get assigned.
 
       TIP:   One way to guess if you might have a dynamic IP address is to disconnect from your Internet service provider, reconnect and recheck your IP address. If the IP address you see after reconnecting is different, that means you have a dynamic IP address.
 
Note that seeing the same IP address after reconnecting does not necessarily mean that you have a static IP address. This is because if some other computer doesn't use your current address when you disconnect (if someone else doesn't connect to your ISP in the meantime, for example), you may get the same address when you reconnect.
""
If you find out the IP Address range from your ISP then you should be able to either setup a static IP address for your computer. Alternatively, why not try just Disabling the Automatic Network Detection and see what happens in the Firewall Logs. (This can be done under Miscellaneous >>> Settings)

Is it better to have a dynamic IP, or static?

In many respects it's better to use Static IP addresses. DCHP Dynamic can be hacked if someone gets access to your router.

Very interesting.

I think you said you use AOL, what are you thoughts on their service?

Like? Dislike?

I personally grow more and more dissatisfied with them each day.

They're connection sucks.

They're software borders on adware. You can't even check your email without getting ads shoved down your throat.

And they lack integrity - releasing user's search records a couple years ago.

If I wasn't a broke son of a biscuit eating bulldog, I'd switch.

... and I have like every god damn thing set up for my AOL email address. Website management, poker accounts, forums, this, that, every thing.

Half the problem is that you're still using dial-up. With broadband, I'm at least able to use an always on connection and setup my router with one of my AOL usernames to enable the connection and I can connect to the internet without AOL software at all, just haven't convinced Wife to make the full move to Outlook.

I'm not a big fan of AOL nor is many other users that I speak to but they do have a good Broadband package here in the UK offering Unlimited Broadband at 2 meg for about £15.00 a month.

Some good points and some bad though I don't think we should be going down the  "Boycott AOL" route.  To each their own.

You can get your AOL emails in outlook. See this link: http://help.aol.co.uk/aol-email-with-other-email-applications/article/20060816080909990051

Yea, I can sort of agree that we shouldn't necessarily boycott AOL, but releasing user's search records is inexcusable.

Its a huge risk for identity theft.

We are going off topic here though I do agree with you about AOL.

Were we able to resolve your original question about stopping BSOD?

Yes I think so.

If CMF stops an overflow, it will alert me.

I haven't had a BSOD when dialing out to AOL while using CMF (so far), so I'm not sure if I'll still have them or not.


Thank you for your help sir, much appreciated.

The BSOD is to stop your computer having major problems.
Every one experiences the BSOD at some point if it happens with AOL I would be looking at the modem drivers to start with. If it happens again reinstall the driver
Or try AOL auto fix & clean the catch etc. I see you use Norton I did for 5 years until good freeware came on the market it speeded up my computer Norton is a system hog.
