I have just upgraded to XP and now have a problem with my dialout.

Previously, if I clicked the dialer icon, which lives on my desktop, or launched Eudora both dialed out without my involvement. Now, whenever I launch either of these programs the dialup box shows and I have to press the dial button. Not serious but a nuisance.
How do I return my system to it's previous mode of operation?
The other problem is I would like to see actual download speed and not
that which is selected ie 115k. I tried w2 in advanced/extra strings and it didn't work. Finally, what do I use as a delimiter when adding further strings?

Regards...CS

To dial automatically select Properties at the bottom of the Dialup box.
Select the Options Tab
Remove the tick from "Prompt for name and password"

It is best not to put anything in Extra settings unless necessary, if you are not getting the correct connection speed showing you are probably not using the correct drivers.
