XP User Account's Internet Connections

  XCEL 22:42 11 Jun 2005

Hi Recently purchased a new computer, it has XP,
Never used XP before, I have 4 user Account's when If I connect to the internet on my account then I log off and my children log on to there account they have to connect to the Internet again, Is there a setting in XP that lets you stay connected as you switch between users,
Any idea's.

I presume you are using dial up connections and not broadband which is always on as it were.

I'm using Broadband, as we switch users it disconnect's

Is this a system where you dial up to get a broadband connection? Do you click an icon and then wait whilst dialing takes place, to eventually get a broadband connection?

You need to enable RAS connections.

You can also do this with TweakUI click here

click here scroll down to 32 "keep ras connection..." and click on the exe. Once downloaded double click the file.

Do you have service pack 2 installed? I found after updating to service pack 2, my broadband connection stayed active when switching between users.
