    I've ask this question once but i can't find any working answer so i'm risking it again.

    I want my internet connection to start automaticaly when i boot.
    What i tried:
    Startup menu = failed
    Task Scheduler = failed
    Make it connect through MSN Messenger or ICQ = Failed

    I have Norton Internet Security installed and my connection is not firewalled. It is an ADSL connection which is installed as a dialup connection.

    any suggestion?

    Internet Options - Connection Tab
    Put a tick in "Always Dial My Default Connection"
    (of course, you need to have a connectoid for your DSL)

    Then put something (the connectoid, MSIE, email program, anything that needs a connection) in your startup folder.

    nop, that's the first thing i tried...
    i'm pretty sure my forewall (norton) block something because i can connect only a few seconds after i'm logged in.
     
  6. How about writing a small batch file that calls rasdial and putting that in your startup folder, e.g.

    rasdial <myconnection>

    See here for more details

    you got it bob! rasdial autoconnect when placed in my startup menu... the weird unexplained delay is still there but it waits for it to be passed and then dial the connection.

    Thanks!

    I remember when i was with aol and to get on line i had to dial the numbers and hurried to finish whatever i had to do so i could free the phone line because i had one phone line.
    Well I got cable modem more than one year ago and since then my computer has been connected to the internet. It's always on

    the modem is connected to my computer via a network card so it's not like with an usb cable, i must connect to it via a shortcut
     
  14. You may also need to specify the domain by using

    /domain:domain

    I though you had to check "dial whenever a network connection is not present" to get it to dial out?!?

    just get a router, and set it up. Works great. The router stores username, password, DNS servers etc..
    It's costly but works a treat. I have it and never have to connect or anything. Router works with Cable and DSL.
    One sure way to get it to stay on all the time.
