If you look at LAN settings in Internet Explorer (properties, connections lan settings). If the "use a proxy server" option is ticked and the servers name/ip address is there with the port number then you going out via the network. Instead, if you are using the ms proxy client then the "use automatic configuration script" box is ticked, complete with a load of jargon, you are also going out via the network.

On the other hand, if you open IE and the dial up box appears, obviously you are not going out via the network and are using dial up instead.

by default, the default gateway on the dial-up connection will be enabled.  The system will still use the NIC to talk to other systems on the local subnet, but will route all remote traffic to the dial-up.  This can be changed in the properties of the dial-up connection.
