    Network /internet connection (Explorer 6)

    I have a laptop that i am trying to use it at work, i gave it an ip address , LAN is connected everything is fine, but when i open the browser it dials my default connection which is with aol. Is there way to dial the LAN connection instead so i can get access to the internet at work.

    Is the setting for Connections in Control Panel|Internet Options configured to the LAN? How is the "dial a connection" option configured? HTH

    Tools > Internet Options > Connections ...

    Select 'Never dial a connection', then setup your LAN connection by clicking on either the 'Setup' or 'LAN Settings' buttons...

    Do you mean that it still dials all the time? Can you post a screen shot of your internet connection settings?
