Is there any way i can keep the broadband link running whilst i change users on my PC.
I have XP home, Office 2003, MSN8 and BT Broadband.
Can i set up a virtual network on one machine or do i have to have a server and PC's hanging of it.
May sound stupid but you never know who's out there!!! with the knowledge ;o)

I use XP Home and keep connected to ADSL whilst changing users with no problems. These are not limited accounts however, which might make a difference, I don't know. Do you get a disconnect dialogue window pop up, or does it merely disconnect when you change users ?

Hi wags

as i switch users the link drops and i have to re-establish in the other account. I notice that if i have two accounts live then both access the broadband and download email in the background - if that makes sense?
