I am currently running Windows XP, i want to switch back to 2000 Professional since my PC is not that fast, and does not peform as well as it did on Windows 2000 Professional. I like the fast user switching option in win xp, which also enables me to connect to the internet, and then I can click switch user so the connection stays active on my account and other users and PC's internet connection will not be disturbed. I have 2 PC's. My main PC is running internet connection sharing which is the one I want to revert back to Win 2k Pro. Is there a way to setup windows 2000 professional so that it connects to the internet on bootup automatically WITHOUT having anyone sign in as well as maintaining that connection even if a user signs off. I had tried this before in windows 2000 and as soon as you log off, it would close the internet connection, and because of that everyone else on the network lost access to the internet. Is there a way that I can get windows 2000 to run the connection as a system service or is there a way I can get win2k to keep the connection running and never close?

I believe the answer is simply "no".

A couple of other thoughts, however...

How much RAM is in this sluggish PC?  I've seen an upgrade to at least 256MB make a significant improvement to system performance in WinXP.

Another thought is that you would be well-served by a using a router.  They're quite cheap these days and would provide the very best (far better) solution for you whether you go back to Win200 or not.

Cheers!
