Hi, welcome to the boards
about your problem,
as far as i read i see that the problem is not with your computer, but more with thte AOL dialer program. One way to get this fixed is to get the most updated AOL version and then try with that, or if you are already using the latest, wait for them to release a bug fix.. eventually they will, they have to.
Although i would strongly suggest you move to another ISP other than AOL because they are one of the worst ISP's you can be with..

well I personally didn't see any difference when i switched COM ports, it still connected at the same speed and the reliability was the same ..
The COM ports usually only matter when there are IRQ conflicts, and when you switch them, they are usually fixed, that may be your case
