"If you have your ADSL BB connection set up to remember your name and password when you connect then you can make it auto connect during the Windows boot process. Drag a copy of the icon that you use to connect, into the directory C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup and then every time you switch on, your PC will automatically connect to your Broadband provider." - Source click here=.

Unfortunately I tried what you said but it didnt work ... it isnt the end of the world if i cant connect to the internet at startup but it would be cool if I had that option

Hi, one way to get this is to use a Ethernet ADSL Modem (external) which is connected to a PCI Ethernet card in your pc. This is what I have.

Cheers.
