Internet connection always on with Vista ?

Is it normal for a pc running vista to connect itself to the internet automaticaly, without the owner going into some depth of changing the default settings ?

I'm sorry I can't be any more specific yet, as I'm trying to remotely help a friend with an page access problem, and this is the first thing he tells me !

I asked his to turn the pc off, then after he had booted up, to make a new connection. He then tells me that he is already connected.

Many thanks
John

Yes if he has added it to his start up programs and perhaps also is connected via a router which does not need to dial up.
