Default odd aol problem - a few issues, please read!

A friend of mine has a few issues that i cant solve, and its driving me mad

He has a pc which has worked with aol for a while now, he connects using a bt voyager 105 modem (usb)

Last week he had problems with the system not connecting...

He had a few other pc issues so i reformatted the machine - and restored it to factory settings

No heres where it gets odd

When reinstalling xp and the aol client software, i couldnt get aol to work at all

the modem powers up happily, and the dsl light is solid - but the only network connection added is "network connection 2" which is set to limited connectivity

when trying the aol client software i get nowhere - usually stops at requesting dsl network attention

i spend ages trying to get this to work - to no avail, so i decide to phone aol, and the phone cuts out twice on me, then 10 min later i dont get a dial tone on the phone - which is odd!!

i still had a dsl connection light (i tried another phone - still no dial tone no matter what socket in the house i used)

i then got my router from my house - which again got a dsl light - but failed on authentication.... (i may have had the password wrong), so i may return and try it - but i thought i would ask on here first if anyone had any ideas
