How to disable work offline

Everytime I connect to the internet (dial up) it comes up as work offline. I go in file and work offline is ticked. I can untick it and the internet connects but the next time I connect it is the same thing again and and I have to untick work offline again to connect to the internet. This happens everytime and is proving to be very annoying. Help would be greatly appreciated. There must be a way to disable this. Win XP and ntl dial up. Thanks.

in order to rule out your ISP dialer can you say what happens if you:


(do not connect to the internet)


open Internet Explorer and untick 'work offline'


then close Internet Explorer


shut pc down and reboot


then open Internet Explorer again


is the setting (no tick ) saved in IE ?

Have you looked in Tools, Internet Options, Connections tab to make sure that 'Always dial my default connection' is selected?

lotvic, thanks, I tried what you suggested, no luck.
Eric10, yes 'Always dial my default connection is selected'.
