Internet Explorer

I have just formatted my hard drive and reloaded Win98. I use NTL broadband and everytime I try to run IE I obtain the wizard which looks for a modem and I can't tell it I am using a Lan connection. I could connect an external modem to pacify the wizard and use the IE screen to swap over to a Lan connection. Is there an easier way than this??
Please help

IE, Tools, Internet options,Connections tab, LAN settings, tick automatically detect settings.

Not sure but it may help.

Try going to Control Panel - Internet Options - Connections and tick the "Never dial a connection" option. If your broadband is running, IE will automatically open to the internet; if not, it will open a box telling you you are not connected.
