disabling "work offline" in IE

hi there

Having a problem with my browser settings (IE).
I have a dial-up connection. To access this I double-click on my shortcut to IE on the desktop, however, it comes up as working offline and displays an offline page. Clicking on a link from this offline homepage will prompt it to ask to connect.

When I go to menu and select file, work offline is always ticked. I can untick this and it will then connect as normal, but when I go back at a later date, offline is still ticked.
Question is, how do i set it to disable "work offline", ie just connect to the internet normally?

in ie click file/untick work off line, also check in internet options/connections that your dial up is set as default and always dial my default connection.
