I have the Control Panel -> Internet Autodial box checked but but it does not work for Netscape 3.0 or RealAudio.  It used to work but I recently had to reinstall W95 and it hasn't worked since then.  What else do I need to do?

Reset these:
1.In My Computer or Windows Explorer, double-click
Dial-Up Networking.
2.In the Dial-Up Networking dialog box, click More,
then User preferences.
3.On the Dialing tab of the User Preferences dialog
box, under Enable auto-dial by
location, select at least your current location and
any other dialing locations where you want
to use auto-dial.
4.Enter a number for Idle seconds before hanging up,
so the connection will be broken after
you get your mail, as long as there's no other
Internet activity. 60 seconds is probably a good
number to start with.
5.Switch to the Appearance tab, and uncheck Preview
phone numbers before dialing,
Show location setting before dialing and Always prompt
before auto-dialing.
6.Click OK to save the auto-dial settings.

smeebud, what OS are you running?  have build .1111 here and tried to find these setting both with and without IE 4.low installed...all I could find was Connection-->settings, with a general tab inside... point me in the right direction please... also, what is the regedit fix for this when the connect to inet as needed no longer works?  This happens a lot with windoze 95 crashes and I sure am tired of telling people that they are out of luck...email me if you have time
thanks in advance

My system is the same as david r's, Connections->Settings->General.  How do I get to the "Dial-Up Networking dialog box"?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

bswanney, and davis_r, I apologize, I was working on another problem similar and gave you the wrong answer, as you both pointed out.

bswanney, see
http://www.windows95.com/apps/dialup-dialers.html
there is a wide choice of freeware .
-------HERE'S A VERY GOOD UTILITY.
i think a utility would be a very good way to go since you moved to 95. You do not want to have to mess around with the Win95's
DUN update patch believe me. Big problems there.
this one work well and is free,

Internet Dialer is a very handy program that you can
use to connect to your Internet
Service Provider via TCP/IP. Internet Dialer is not
a replacement of Microsoft's
Dial-up Networking Program but an Addon with more
features added. Requires the
VB 5.0 Runtimes.

Oh yea,, if you don't want additional software:
----
How can I set my Netscape 3.0 icon to automatically bring up my dial-up networking connection?

In "My Computer" double click on Dial-Up Networking.

In there, choose the "Connections" menu option and click on "Settings".
Make sure "Prompt to use Dial-Up Networking" is selected.

If you are still using "Control Panel -> Internet Autodial "
-------
1.- Click on Start | Settings | Control Panel
2.- Click on Internet | Choose the Connection tab
3.- Check "Connect to the internet as needed"
4.- Also select the ISP to connect
