    shortcuts in batchfile (Pro)

    Here I am again with another batch file question! Does anyone know how to get a shorcut to work in a batch file? I'd like to create a batch file that can enable a local area network and then open Internet Explorer. I've create my own about blank page featuring useful internet links (as per one of Woody's suggestions). When I was using dial up networking I could launch Internet Explorer click on a link and I'd automatically start connecting to the internet. Now I'm using a router if I don't enable the local network first I get a 'The Page Cannnot be Found' message when I click on a link. Or perhaps some one can tell me how to configure the local area network so that when I click on an Internet link the network is automatically enabled?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    How is the LAN disabled in the first place?

    What are your connection settings in IE?

    Sorry for this cross post - you asked me how the LAN is disabled. In the Broadband won't connect to the lounge thread I wrote:

    "From inside the Control Panel if I open up Network Connections I get a list of connections. One of them is called 'local area Connection' - it connects to a router which connects to the Internet.. The 'local area Connection' reads as disabled. If I right click it I can enable it. I have a shorcut on my desktop. When I click that it enables the network. To unable the network I click the icon in the tray and select disconnect."

    Internet Explorer shows two connections (the "Never Dial a Connection" raid button is checked). One is for Asahi the other is for Tiki-Tiki - both are providers, but Asahi isn't being used - it'/s a kind of emergency reserve. The Tiki tiki connection works through the router via the LAN and as dialup through the ordinary telephone line.

    I hope this answers your second question - if not please tell me what else you need to know!

    Thanks,

    Chris
