Introduction: Changin Your DNS Servers to OpenDNS
Recently the AOL servers have been a bit shoddy and haven't been working properly which has meant that some unfortunate souls, like myself, have been unable to access certain websites (mainly wiggle.co.uk). The way to fix this is to change the DNS servers you connect to away from the main AOL ones to openDNS servers instead at no cost whatsoever.

Step 2: Network Connections
Then click on ' Network Connections' (highlighted in red again)
Step 3: Sellecting Connection to Change
Right click on the connection you use to connect to the internet and select properties

If it stops working then that is the connection you want to change
Step 4: Selct TCP/IP
Select 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)' (sometimes 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IPV4)') and click 'properties' (Don't uncheck the tick box - leave it alone)
Step 5: Use Custom DNS
Select 'Use the following DNS server addresses'
Step 6: Changin the DNS Servers
Enter these values:
