    ME and Netscape

    I use Netscape 4.78. Have it on my PC and when I open Netscape, my connection is automatically dialed (using Win 98 SE).
    On my new IBM Think Pad with Windows ME, I have to connect manually before I can use Netscape Communicator or Messenger. I have checked all settings that I can think of. Any suggestions for resolving this annoying situation? Thanks . <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23>

    Netscape 6 is apparently now finished and stable. Maybe this would work better with Me.
    We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I think the problem is Dial up Networking. Whenever I check the properties, the "never dial my connection" is checked. I change it to "always
    dial my connection" and as soon as DUN is closed and I open it again, the properties are back to the "never..." I guess this is a case for MS, but I am going to try tech support with IBM first.

    Edited by cbaldrey to make KB article active

    Found an MS knowlege article, <A target="_blank" HREF=http://support.microsoft.com/directory/article.asp?ID=KB;EN-US;Q275317>Q275317</A>, Unable to Change Internet Connection setting in Windows ME--describes my situation exactly, EXCEPT for the solution. I do not have internet call waiting for PC by Bell Canada.
    Microsoft lists no other solution. Guess it is their way or no way! any suggestions?
    Thanks for "listening".
