View Full Version : Internet Connection Box reappears?



21-05-2002, 11:13 AM
Win98SE
IE5.5
Opera5.x

When exiting from these programs (each brings up an auto disconnect box as required) the following happens:

1. We choose disconnect
2. Modem disconnects and all necessary programs close :)
3. Internet connection box reappears!!

It doesn't automatically reconnect so it is only nuisance value.

Any ideas?
TIA

In IE - tools - connections - dial up advanced settings and untick box that that says 'disconnect when connection no longer needed'

Actually I think you still want the disconnect prompt. The problem could be MSN Messenger. Do you have that running, as I have found sometimes it can cause the dialup networking to start up. I tried getting MS to fix it, but they never did. Try closing MSN Messenger and set it to not start when you start Windows.
