Using Braodband, you don't use dial-up. You need to set your browser to Never dial a connection. You also need to configure your Braodband modem to automatically dial your ISP - the documentation you got with your modem will tell you how to do this. Then, as soon as you switch on your modem, it will automatically connect to your ISP and you will be constantly on-line. If all esle fails, contact your modem help-desk and/or your ISP to obtain all the specific settings.
