Keeping well I hope? Think that harps1h just wants his/her modem to connect automatically when booting the PC rather than click on the Icon to make the connection. If so then all modems will do this, just add it to your start-up folder.
Could you not set the modem to start in MSCONFIG, to start when Windows starts up? But that way, when you was feed-up with the internet and got rid of the screen/page, you would still have to click the internet Icon.
Unless, harps1h means he/she has to put a password in every time they connect!!
