I have just bought a wireless router for my aol broadband account.

the only reason I got it was because my sister got a laptop and wanted the internet, so i set it up which took ages...but finally got there, connected my desktop with the ethernet cable and her laptop is wireless.

I know nothing about wireless routers so my questions are -

when i switch on the computer I can access the internet through explorer instantly, I dont need to sign in to aol, is this normal??
I only need to sign in if I want to check e-mail or access any aol features.

I am a bit worried as I thought you would still need to sign in to the account?? or have I done something wrong and that it is accessing the net some how and will charge on the phone bill (can that be done with broadband)??

silly questions I know.

Perfectly normal.

Even when using aol dial up you could use internet explorer once you had connected.

Thats the best thing about using a router.

You can use firefox, opera or IE.. doesnt matter.
