I have now had this problem twice After Using Outlook Express Working off line and writing an email. when I close Express the Dial-up connection showing My tiscali connection for dial-up is missing I have searched for it using search after making sure all working off line properties are not ticked . The only wayI have been able to it back is to do a restore.Is there another way without doing this. I use a Tiacali broadband 2mg Plase can someone Help!!!
Hi If Stuartli's suggestion has resolved your problem all well and good but I am confused - you say you are on broadband but talk about dial up - are you referring to the two little TVs in your notification area or am I missing the point?
Maybe I'm a bit thick but I still don't follow that. I am on NTL BB and when I click on ie in the Start bar I immediately get my home page (Google. uk.) I also have an internal analogue modem installed (in case BB goes down) but to use that I have to double click on the Tiscali icon on the desktop, which then gives me a "Connect" dialogue box. I click on connect and it dials out and connects me to Tiscali???
They are right, Broadband is shown as a dialup. in the connection setup, usually a zero is inserted inplace of the dialup number. On startup the pc needs to tell the server that it wants to connect to it via the phone line though there is no actual number to dialup. Having a zero where the phone number goes initiates the connection protocols.
It is a bit misleading but your pc still has to initiate the connection just like dialup.
I'm afraid I am going have to agree to disagree with you Stuartli on this occassion, never mind this is camaraman's thread perhaps you would like to tell us where you are now or have we managed to confuse you even more than I am?
