Yes, it's not like your old dial up modem that you can configure to connect automatically, you have to connet each time.(But of course once connected, just leave it on until you have finished for the day)
I have Tiscali, 3x, and My connection speed is reported when i hover my mouse pointer over the 'two screens' icon at 2.2Mbps. I Assume this is the connection speed between my PC and the USb modem, not the speed between the modem and the net.
Or it is an error in the drivers for the modem, and results in the wrong speed being reported. If i do an online speed test, it works out at the correct figure for the connection i have. Not at 2.2Mbps as reported to me by windows.
And with my alcated Modem i have it setup to automatically connect whenever a connection is required but not present.
