Right i just did exactly what you said gerryf and it was originally set to ALWAYS DIAL MY DEFAULT CONNECTION.,so i set it to NEVER DIAL A CONNECTION, but no change.
So i re-booted and tried again but when i connect i have always seen a box dialling up and it was still there but it could no longer establish a connection.Even when i changed it back i couldn't get back on the internet,even after a restart and as a last resort i clicked the wanadoo broadband icon on my destop and it finally connected[phew!!!].
The icon's not the way you have to use by default though.I know that's just in case of emergencies as my Anytime connection had one similar to it which dialled my default number for anytime if for some reason i had a problem.
In the CONNECTIONS box,I see Wanadoo Broadband[default]and i've changed back to always dial my default..etc.If i don't it will not connect to the internet and i wouldn't be able to reply to you now.
The problem is still the same though and i've only been on ADSL for 3 days and it's been like this since i went ADSL with OE.
I still have my 56K moden in one of my PCI slots but the dial-up account is deleted[cable out too] and i was told to leave it in for a bit in case BB didn't work so i could still get on the net.I was told it would be OK by a MS engineer and Wanadoo too.
Could that be the problem gerryf ?
