Does the green light on the modem flash?

And when you click connect its has become a solid green?

What operating system are you using?

green lights seem fine , both on constant , using xp ; it isn't really a big deal , just an in-convenience that my connection is instant but she has to move mouse to "connect " box.. whereas the corresponding box when i log on says "cancel" .. just a bit odd ; i must have un-checked a box one day , idle hands and all that! thanks

Click start, run, type:

msconfig

Click ok.

Then click STARTUP.

Now in the list look for an item with alcatel in it....

Tick the box next to it.

That should re-eanable a connection at start-up.

Or click start and have a look in the startup folder, remove the connection and then put it back in.
