Thread: Dial-up Connection

  1. #1
    In "internet options",
    Click on connections.
    Under connections, there are 3 choices:
    1:"never dial a connection"
    2:"dial whenever a network connection is not present"
    3."always dial my default connection"

    I have it set on number 3 ..."always dial my default connection"

    But the setting is constantly changing to number 1..."never dial a connection"

    I set it on number 3 and come back to check a minute or two later, and it has switched to number 1.

    By being set on number 1, if my internet disconnects for any reason, it will not re-connect on it's own, because the setting has change to "never dial a connection."

    Can anybody tell me how to get the setting to remain the same?
    I would appreciate any help.
    Thanks

    If its AOL they use about 5 different dial up numbers when you connect.

    So you cant auto dial up once disconnected.

    Thats why I was asking, AOL uses its own dialer program. If your on 8.0, go to Keyword: Reconnect

    Scan your system, it sounds like a virus.

    I am connected through a dial up company that uses MSN.
    I have never even logged on to AOL.
    Also, I have checked and there is no virus.
    What else could cause this problem?
    Thanks to everyone who answered this and tried to help.
