How to connect to the Net automatically on startup?
Hey everyone. I'm brand new to this forum and I'd very much appreciate it if you could help me solve a minor annoyance.
I'm using Windows 7-32 Bit on my laptop and I have a PPPoE connection to the Internet. Each time I close the lid to put my laptop to sleep, the connection is terminated. This also happens each time I reboot the PC. That is not my problem. However the problem is that I really really want the computer to automatically connect to the Net as soon as I login. I checked out some solutions on Google but all of them had quite similar instructions:
1. Deselect the "Prompt for name and password..." checkbox in the Properties page.
2. Create a shortcut to the connection and place it on the desktop.
3. Open the Startup folder and cut and paste the shortcut there.
These steps unfortunately DO NOT work for me at all. I'm ready to try out any solutions you can offer. I maybe new to this forum but I've been wrangling with PCs for nearly a decade so any solution will be truly appreciated, no matter how advanced.
Is there any way to automatically connect to the Internet on login?
Once again, any help is greatly appreciated.
