    GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING all !

    I'm wondering how i could make my internet connection to connect automaticaly at boot. Until a few days ago, it was started by MSN but it does not anymore (probably the martians...)
    I've already tried puting a shortcut in startup in the start menu and it still doesn't work.

    I'm sure it so simple :rolleyes:

    thx!

    Open IE click tools > Internet Options > Connections,,, Put a mark in dial whenever a network connection is not present that should do it...

    You might also want to go into your specific connections properties and remove the chack from anything that mentions prompt...
     
  3. i'm on dsl and what i do is put aim in auto start , so when windows boots aim tryes to go online and it connects :)

    Automatic Login

    Try RASPPPoE for ADSL. If you follow the advanced instructions this will create a dialup which you can then run using scheduler. Since it's using your native Windows dialer you can also use it to automatically dial normal dialup accounts as well.

    RASPPPoE Win2k/XP Support Doc

    See section 5.6 on the above page.

    Re: Automatic Login

    My connection already uses a dialup and i tried to put a shortcut in in the task scheduler and it didn't work... Even when i right click on the task and click on "Run" it doesn't connect.... :mad:

    seriously, any other ideas???

    Why does a simple shortcut in the Startup menu wont work?!? Is there a way to add a /option to the shortcut to force connection when executed by the os (and not by me)????
    :confused: :confused: :confused:
