Wireless problem - ADSL modem router

  [DELETED] 16:19 25 Feb 2006

The problem is that I'm unable to connect to the Internet using my PC.
Laptop works fine with the Belkin wireless router and strangely the home pc does send and receive Outlook emails so the connection is made.
However the pc insists on displaying the Dial-up Connection dialog box when I try and click Internet Explorer icon. In that screen the Connect to: is BT Openworld Broadband with my User name: and Password: boxes completed. Click Connect and it says "Unable to establish a connection".
Just why this Dial-Up screen appears I'm at a loss to explain. It didn't use to and previously I would go straight into my Home Page. Tried all sorts of permutations in the various Property boxes without any success. Help please.

Go into your IE settings and select Tools/Connection and then select 'never dial a connection'.
