Getting rid of dial up box

I have recently changed to a wireless modem but if I try to connect Windows Media Player to the internet the old dial up box appears even though I have disconnected it. Can anyone help?? I also changed to Mozilla Firefox as well so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it.

THanks

Try Tools/Internet Options/Connections tab and make sure the circle that says 'Never dial a connection' is marked.

Or ensure that your wireless connection is enabled as the default connection and, under the connections tab, choose 'Always dial my default connection'.

Have you completely removed the 'old' connection - perhaps via Add/Remove Programs?

Thanks to both of you.

I have tried Guardianangel's suggestion and it seems to have worked.

Many thanks
