    my wife has a laptop and i have configured it to use the wireless connection whenever available. She uses a Virgin dial up when at the inlaws. when at home with the wireless connection it keeps asking to connect to the virgin connection and i cant figure out why as it is set up to dial up if network is not available, and it is pi**ing her off and in turn pi**ing me off as she nips my head. any info would be GREATLY appreciated.

    The best way I find, is to set it to never dial a connection and establish the dial up connection manually. You can always put a desktop shortcut (Goto network connections, right click on the dial up account and click "Create Shortcut").

    You may want to create multiple hardware profiles. Since you use wireless "wherever available", and the modem only when she is at the in-laws, I would disable the modem as a device in your main profile (where wifi will be used), and create a second profile where the modem is enabled and can be used when she's there.

    EDIT: Here is a linky on information regarding Hardware Profiles
