Hi folks. I have just clean reinstalled using xp and sp1. In the previous set up TB would autoconnect to my broadband ISP every time. This time - no can do. I have made the recommended settings in Control Panel - ie. Internet connections>Connnections and set "dial whenever a network connection is not present" and Administrative Tools>Services and set Remote Access Connection Manager, Remote Access Auto Connection. Manager and Telephony to Automatic. Also Network Connections>Properities disabled 2nd and 4th lines. But still no go. Has anyone any other ideas? The connection is broadband with a Sagem modem which works fine. I know this is a minor problem but it is really bugging me. Thanks for any help you can offer

Diodorus. Thanks for that. This setting was already active. However, all of a sudden the autodial is now active. Great news - but why. I hate a mistery particularly as I won't know how to fixit again next time.

I have finally found the fix. Control Panel > phone and modem. Set up "My Location" by inputting the local dialling code. Make sure this is active in "Dialing Rules". The reason to miss this is that recently I have gone to broadband which doesn't need this input to work.
