XP wont let me connect to internet on startup

  csansbury 00:18 21 Jun 2003

I have XP Pro with BT Openworld

For some reason, althogh I have the correct connection in the startup folder, windows does not seem to allow connection to the internet on startup. It will allow connection with the same shortcut a few moments later.

I'd like to be connected on start-up, and I'd appreciate any help.

and select 'Connect to' and then 'show all connections'

Click on 'Advanced' in the menu bar.

Select 'Dial up preferences'

Click on the tab marked 'Autodial'

Put a tick next to: 'New location - the current location' in the 'Autodial by location' dialogue.

Reboot and see what happens.
