Some times when I am surfing the net I get the modem trying to connect to the net when I am already connected. The box pops up saying that 'www.website.com' has requested a connection to the internet which connection do you want to use?

Pressing cancel causes the box to go away and for me to continue surfing as does clicking ok the dial. (when clicking ok then dial it does not appear to dial out and the box goes away.)

I have tried uninstall the modem and deleting my internet connection, and re doing them but it still happens.

Note: www.website.com is an example and is not related to the problem.

Any ideas???

Sounds dodgy to me try installing zone alarm so you can see what program is requesting the dial up. From there you might have more of an idea of whats going on.

It's the website I'm going to that is requesting the dial up. but the weird thing is I'm already connected at that point.
Happens with any website.
