    I have noticed after termination of my DSL service that every once in a while XP automatically, without asking me first, begins to dial Earthlink over my 56K modem. I searched for an option to disable this auto-dial and found none. If I were to deselect the option to make my Earthlink connection the default connection for my computer would that prevent XP from automatically dialing up every time it wants to access the net bu tthere is no current connection? Thanks.

    yeah this was bad bad of microsoft to change the location of the default autodialer. This has drove more people crazy...including myself!

    On desktop right click network places, select properties. The select the "advance" menu at top of window and select "dialup preferences. A smaller windows will appear, ensure you looking at the "autodial" tabbed window and unselect the isp.

    You are now fixed.

    Thanks much TeK! Probably never would have found that on my own. It's almost like Microsoft hid it.
