ok - here's one for those of you who know more than i do about network gaming (i guess that's just about everyone )

i got my cousin hooked on TM, but he can't bring up any servers once he's connected... all i can do is talk him through on the phone, since he's 3000 miles away.
he uses AOL for inet connection (i do too, and we don't want to hear about it ok? - it's free and relatively stable). his browser seems to work fine, and gets good connection speeds between 33.6 and 50 kbps, but when he runs TM and gets to the server menu screen, he gets the message "DOWNLOAD FAILED" after he selects "refresh internet" or even after he types in a good server IP and hits "start".

any idea what's up?

oh yeah!!!

ok - so your suggested order of things to try:

1) uninstalling/re-installing AOL
2) uninstalling/re-installing AOL TCP/IP adaptor (does uninstall of AOL do this?)
3) uninstalling/re-installing TM?

right?
thanks!
