Hi folks, well with your help over the years I've gradually increased my list of IT toys. I now have ADSL running successfully via a router allowing me to use my laptop whilst the wife searches for the latest goss on her soapies via the desktop! Anyway, my only minor glitch is that from time to time when I open a new IE6 screen, the lappy tries to use a dial up connection. I do have a prepaid-dial up short cutted for use on holidays. But it is NOT set as my default connection, and the dialing rules are such that it should never dial a connection. In other words, there should be no reason for it to dial but it does.
It is an intermittent problem but annoying. Anyone come across it before?
