    well i finally got ADSL (yeeeeeeey),.
    and i realy want it to dial otomaticly every time i logon or start windows.
    my problem is that i know how to make the dialer come-on on startup (start->programs->startup->got_my_point).

    my qwestion is can i make it dial on startup?
     
  2. Can't remember the exact command but you could create a new batch file (or shortcut) that executes the following command

    rasdial <dialup name>

    e.g.

    rasdial MyADSL

    and stick that in your startup group.

    Only a qusetion not asked is a stupid question ;)
    Just right click your dekstop, make a new shortcut, with target rasdial etc... After that move it to the startup group.

    If you use rasdial to connect you can use a script like this and put a shortcut in startup group.

    little script:

    rasdial name_of_your_ras_connection user password.



    Complete option of rasdial: rasdial /? in cmd windows

    it was more for general knolege then for practical use (my modem starts working after a few secondes after loging on).
