About AOL Connect

AOL Connect is a quick and easy way to connect to the Internet and run third-party applications. With AOL Connect, you no longer need to start the full AOL software to browse the Web, play online games, or perform online file transfers. Simply set up a location, sign on to AOL Connect, and you're up and running. You can even set AOL Connect to connect to the Internet automatically whenever you start programs that require Internet access.

With AOL Connect you can use a dial-up connection, a broadband connection, or both. Simply create different locations and select them when you need them. AOL Connect recalls your location preferences and connects you the right way, whenever you need to connect.
