network laptop/pc, pc dialing out

  John-251129 11:18 04 Sep 2003


I have just networked a XP PC, Laptop and a win98 pc. When I plug in the laptop to the net the PC dials out to the internet.
I HAD the laptop set to go through the pc to the internet and the pc was dialing out every few minutes ( I would cancel it dialing if I caught it in time or if not I would disconnect from the internet ). Since I set the laptop to use it's modem to dial out it does'nt dial out as often!!
It seems to do it when it's first connected to the net(pc). The win98 pc is ok.

Norton AntiVirus Live Update pools for a internet connection every 5 minutes (and then every 4 hours if it does connect) for updates. By disabling Live Update on the laptop it stopped "auto" dialing out
