Modem - how to get it to logon automatically

  orangewhiteblue 12:05 12 Sep 2008


My Netgear router has died on me so I've just installed an old Sagem [email protected] 800 modem temporairily until I get a new router.

I have to logon manually after the computer has booted up. Is there any way that I can get it to logon as part of the start up process?

You could try setting starting up your browser (either using your home page or a dummy URL) in your Startup menu, plus have your Internet Connection settings to dial the modem automatically.

If you connect by double clicking a shortcut, put a copy of that shortcut into the "Startup" folder:

C:\Documents & Settings\{username}\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
