    Dial up setting does not hold w/ network card (IE6)

    I have dial up internet connection and have it set to always dial up the internet. Every time i plug in an ethernet card or wireless card. THe setting switches to connect to dial up only if no network connection versus my preferred setting of only dial up. THis drives me crazy as I connect and disconnect to a local network in the office but need to dial up onto the internet.
    Any help in keeping this setting frozen.

    I don't know the solution to that, but I find it's easiest to tell IE never to dial on its own, and use a shortcut on the desktop for my dial-up connection.

    Thanks, I tried as you suggested. And it does not seem to hold this setting for more than an hour either.
    Is there something that I do not understand with IE6???
    Thanks

    Well, I still use IE 5.5 SP2, and I'm not rushing to update, so I couldn't tell you. Sorry!
