I have an interesting problem ;I thought that if one mouse clicked on the Desktop IE6 Browser icon as seen here

[url=click here][img]click here[/img][/url]
and the tab to always dial my default conenction seen here


c [url=click here][img]click here[/img][/url]




is NOT activated as seen here [url=click here][img]click here[/img][/url]
then the internet connection would still activate; as far as I am aware, assuming the machine has a connection TO the internet although it may not be actually on line, then if you click the IE6 icon it WILL connect to the internet? For some odd reason mine does NOT unless my machine has the 'always dial my default connection' tab enabled? Is this right???

It should be if you are on a dial up connection.
I have a broadband cable connection and I have Always dial a connection disabled.

Not sure.I am with Virginmedia and have it disconnected, maybe other ISP's need it connected I do not know.In the square box above it is there anything on there.Mine is blank.Maybe if you let us know what ISP you have someone will be able to give you the proper information.
