    Is there any way I can get my ADSL connect when XP boots. Like a system service? Now I have to login and go to Start -> Connect To -> Verizon DSL.

    A friend told me to look into connecting on demand. Where the connection will activate if a program looks for it (I know IE can do it but what about if ANY program want an internet connection.)

    Thx
