I currently have a DSL connection to my ISP. Under the Network/Configuration tab I have the following adapters and protocals installed.
AOL Dial Up Adapter
Dial Up Adapter
Intel(R) Pro/DSL 2100 Modem-PPP
NDISWAN-Intel(R) Pro/DSL 2100 Modem
TCP/IP-AOL Dial Up Adapter
TCP/IP-Dial Up Adapter
My question is, do I need all of these protocals and adapters installed or only the Intel DSL modem and associated protocal? I do access AOL through my ISP but I'm thinking that since it's through my DSL connection that I wouldn't need all of the AOL Adapters and TCP/IP-AOL *** stuff. The only adapter I'm using is the Intel DSL modem which is bound only to the NDISWAN protocal. Am I creating a bunch of unneeded overhead here as far as my connection is concerned or would that only be the case if my Intel adapter was bound to more than one protocal?

I think that I would leave that alone - for risk of causing problems with either AOL or your DSL connection or both. In this case, "if it ain't broke don't fix it" would be my approach.
