Sorry to post such a straight-forward question, but how do I get Windows (XP) to ask me to connect to the internet when I open IE? Thanks in advance, Gavin

Have you tried when in IE
Tools/InternetOptions/Connections/Always dial my default connection.
Going on memory as long time since I had a modem

Internet Explorer, File Menu, Work Offline.

If I understand you correctly, you don't want to dial the connection every time. Rayuk's suggestion may also work if you UNCHECK this option.
