can anyone suggest a bb modem that will connect on start up rather than having me connect manually?

thanks

harps1h, the only thing you will need to set up is the drivers. What is the problem??

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.

With this method, the router/modem make connection, the PC and use need to do nothing.

The one I use cost £32.89 click here. I am very happy with it, so do many users in ebuyer.

This modem has usb connection as well as 4 port network/lan/ethernet connection.

If you do not want to connect to usb, your PC need a network (lan, ethernet) port for the connection. If you PC does not have one, you can get a PCI network card from ebuyer £2.34 click here.

Djohn, morning, I'm well. Hope you are ok.

Sorry, I can now see what harps1h is saying.

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!!

I agree Smegs. The way I have my USB modem set is with an Icon on the desktop then just click on it first thing in the morning, leave on all day, just turn browser on and off as required.

Yes, feeling well at the moment thanks. :o)

c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

Router is still a better way.

As TomJerry says, when you get to Startup place a copy/shortcut of your modem Icon in there. j.
