WinXP sp3. My friend uses btinternet.com. To get on line she has to connect manually, I am with Virgin and I am connected online (via int exe)automatically. Is there a way for her to be connected automatically when she opens internet explorer?
I would advise her to use the BTHomeHub rather than the direct connection. I have the same setup BTHomeHub Version 2.0, BT Option3 - my hub is always on, even when PC is off and I am always on-line as soon as I start my PC. She does not need to use the BT CD to make the connection/setup, simply switch everything off, then connect telephone line to hub, hub to power and to PC, using the supplied ethernet cable to PC. She should then switch everything on, start PC and wait for the four blue lights on hub to settle down, may take a minute or two, then start IE.
