I have DSL, and I've always had to connect by clicking on a link on the desktop. My friend told me I shouldn't have to do that. Is there a way I could estblish an internet connection when I startup the computer? What I mean is when I startup the computer, it automatically connects without me having to click anything. I would greatly appreciate any help with this, and thank you so much!

Sorry but your friend isn't correct. With DSL this is the case, plain and simple. If you want to change this you have two options, either go and buy a router, about a 25$ would work or else switch over to cable.
thanx
