you could in theory...(not sure if this would work.) try putting a copy of the connection into the startup folder...like i said...just a theory..never tried it....why would you want a dialup connection to automatically connect on startup? that's gonna drastically slow down your startup times

This will only help to start the dial-up app. when I start iexplore, not auto dial..

try putting a copy of the connection into the startup folder


This will not work, because it will only start the dial-up app., but it will not auto dial..

why would you want a dialup connection to automatically connect on startup?


Because I want when I start my computer everything to be set up..

that's gonna drastically slow down your startup times


No, it will not, it's just a dial-up, it's not a heavy program..
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I had this option in win 98 where it was a checkbox called something like 'automatic dial', and if you check that box it will auto connect if you start the dial-up application, so I know that I have the same (old one) in XP, but I don't know where to find it..
