I have a peer-peer network connected at home.

On the second station I have Windows 98SE with network card and an external modem.

When I try to use any IP communications over the network, the  dial up connection always starts for the modem.

What can I do to stop it accessing the moden and use the network ?

If I remove any IP protocols from the dial-up connection surely this will effect what I can do over the internet ?

Any help will be appreciated.

Go to your Network control panel, then double-click the connection for TCP-IP -> (Network card).  On the Advanced tab, check the box "Use this as the default protocol".

Then close out of there and open the Internet control panel.  Choose the option "Dial whenever a network connection is not present", then click OK.  If this still doesn't resolve it, then choose "Never dial a connection" in Internet control panel.

Too many email signature updates to deal with?

Do you feel like you are taking up all of your time constantly visiting users’ desks to make changes to email signatures? Wish you could manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users? Well, there is an easy way!

Another option would be to configure a hardware profile (if this is a laptop) to disable the modem when necessary.

Are you using Internet Connection Sharing?  See this page for information on configuring if necessary:

on the client, in IE go to tools, internet options, connections, lan settings, and check auto detect settings
also from tools, internet options, connections, check never dial, or dial when network is not present
