I installed XP Pro and now even after I've logged on to my ISP, if I close the browser I have to re logon. Is there a way to keep the connection? It didn't do this in W98.
thanks,

I know there is a nifty program for Telia Cable here in Sweden so there could be other programs out there for other ISP:s I suppose.

What kind of connection do you have?

Internet Explorer -> Tools -> Internet Options -> Connections -> (select your ISP) -> Settings -> Advanced -> untick the Disconnect when connection may no longer be needed.

It's Alcatel usb DSL. It's odd too that if I don't start Internet Explorer first, other net apps, like Mozilla, won't be able to connect. When I start IE the dsl logon box pops up and it connects, but with Mozilla or Xnews I just get "connection not available" even though the dsl "frog" has two green lights.
thanks,

Hey folks, thanks for the suggestions. I think ultimately it was hinky modem drivers. I installed a beta version tonite and it's been online for several hours without a drop.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
