If you open up your web browser first it will usually connect you to the internet automatically, then when you quit the browser it should log you off automatically. Is this what you used to do and now doesn't work? or did you change something else?


I prefer to have my dialup/logon be a stand-alon shortcut on the desktop. I dont like applications guessing at my connect/disconnect intentions. I like to connect/disconnect manually exactly when I want to. I like my applications, such as browsers, email clients, etc., to go where I point them when I point them and not to pop up dialog boxes asking me if I want to disconnect or not. What if I want to use IE just to look at something on my local drives? What if I want to close IE and then open Outlook? Do I want the first app disconnecting me and then the second one reconnecting me? No.

Just ranting...
