Dial-Up Probs

  Ole.H 20:32 04 Jan 2006

I Have W98SE and when I turn on my computer it doesn't dial up my internet connection straight away even tho I've ticked the box (dial whenever no internet connection is present).If I wait a few minutes and then try to connect I get a message saying no dial tone cannot connect but if I switch off the computer and switch back on again i can get on the internet providing I try to connect immediately. Anybody help?

Is this a new problem, or has it always been like this? if new, have you done anything/installed anything just before this problem began? I haven't got solution , but this response will boost it up the queue a bit!

Palinka. It's been happening for about a week now and the only thing I can think of is- I used to have Incredimail but I got rid of it and got Outlook Express back, I "think" it's been since then.

OE uses Internet Explorer's connection configuration, so check out its accuracy if you use this browser.

Also particularly check that Wait for Dial Tone is enabled.
