i am using wxp, dialup.
the problem is this: when i am not online, and want to access IE, offline and select offline,
the system starts dialing the access number.Even tho I cancel it , it repeats,
and wants to dialup again, in offline mode, until I exit IE. In fact if I pull up any program that is operative in an online mode, eg., market quote software, and i try to work in offline mode, the system will try to dialup or dialin. How do I correct this?

Thanks,

Liz

Open IE.
Tools>Internet Options.
Click 'Connections' tab.
Select "Never dial a connection" and click 'OK'.

This setting should solve your problem, but when you want to go online
you will probably first have to manually click your ISP icon and click 'Connect' since it will no longer appear automatically when you open the web-browser.

did not solve the problem, "never dial a connection" was already set.
if i go to any program that uses the net for info, like a data retrieval program for the stock market, or IE, if I click on it in an offline mode
my system will immediately try to dial out to the isp provider
So what Gives?
