Using IE4 & Dialup Networking.  In IE4, View, Internet Options, connection --- The connect to LAN radio button is always selected after boot-up... I set it to connect by modem and point to dialup networking icon that dials my ISP. Shut both down, IE4 and close Dialup network... Now if I double click the IE4 Icon on the desktop, first it dials ISP then connect to my home page.  This will work time after time so long as I dont shut down the system. When I do that I have to re-do the internet options thing again. This was working fine for weeks. I dont know what happened that made it reset itself over a restart but I cant figure out how to fix it!  Help ???

Do you have an ethernetcard installed using TCP/IP?

Author

Commented:
I don't think I have an ethernetcard mostly cause I don't know what one is!

Masseym:
Yup, "Client for Microsoft Networks" is still there... Notice that this just stopped working "out of the blue". I didn't install anything, my system didn't crash, nothing?!?!?

Another interesting thing, now that I think of it. When I IPL, boot up, it's been asking me for a ID and password. It never used to do that either???  I just put in an ID (no password) and it finishes comming up OK.

Commented:
could you show us what is in your network configuration list?
(configuration window -> network -> page configuration)

As is shown by subsequent discussion this is not the case...

Commented:
Sounds like some registry problem I would try SP1

Did you try IE 4 with SP1 download and install it. Good luck.
