    Question !!!
    Installed XPpro, now Internet explorer is the only icon that will auto dial, my icq icon will not autodail anymore, I have to hit the connect button or enter key to make the connection..
    Does anyone know how to make all programs that need to connect to internet , connect automatic without having to hit the connect button..
    Please help.. I have been in my network setup and installed about every tweak I can think of.
    I know that the network use to fix this problem in 95, 98. but cant seem to figure this one out..
    :(

    In Internet Options / Connection Tab do you have "Always Dial Connection When Needed" checked off?

    Nice try but no go

    Just wanted to let ya know that it didn't work alian..
    I know there are like 3 settings to set up connections.
    one in the modem
    one in the internet explorer
    one on my connection
    Networks has one I think...
    where you told me it had 3 options
    Never dial a connection
    Dial whenver a network connection is present
    Always dial my default connection..

    I am stumped on this one but appreciate your help...
    if you have any more ideas please let me know and I will try them..
    going to delete all my dialups and make a new fresh connection and see if that helps
