IE7 Autodial not working, Services disabled

  PhiltheFragger 18:28 19 Feb 2008

Can I Throw this open for discussion, one of my customers machines XP sp2 with a BT voyager 105 usb modem connecting to Waitrose ISP

Waitrose is set up as the default connection in IE7 and always dial my default connection is selected.

But when you hit IE, it does not bring up the connection box

Took a quick look at services.msc

The telefony, RPC and RPC locator were all disabled
I have reenabled them and set to automatic.

Have scanned with Hijack This and Super antispyware and cant see anything untoward there .

Have manually set up a new dial up connection and set it as default, still the same.

I can connect to the net etc if I click on start connect to:etc

Any ideas out there

You do not have to dial a connection on broadband

Web Browser Settings

Internet Explorer 4.0 or Higher

Start IE web browser. Select-Tools-Internet Options-Connection Tab

In the “Connection” screen, there are three selections:

“Never dial a connection”,

“Dial whenever a network connection is not present”

“Always dial my default connection”.

If you can make a selection, select “Never dial a connection”.

If you cannot make a selection, select “LAN Settings”

Untick marks next to any of the displayed Options:

“Automatically detect settings”,

“Use automatic configuration script”

“Use a proxy server”.

Click “OK”. Then click “OK” again in the “Internet Options” page.

Those settings are correct if you use a router, but you do need to make a dial up connection when connecting through a USB BT 105 adsl modem.

Can we try again

I never use USB to connect to broadband always via Ethernet cable to LAN card, system is always on 24/7 so there is no messing around with having to dial up

Sorry unable to help with your problem
