Request to connect
Posted on 2004-10-12
I have installed a BT Voyager USB ADSL modem, which works fine when I boot up. However, when I access the internet via Internet Explorer or Outlook Express, I still see the connect dialogue box which asks me to connect and my old dial up settings are displayed. Clicking on connect establishes the connection, but I thought with broadband, this would be unnecessary. My ISP is 1 and 1 and I can't find any information to help me check my settings. Should I just accept that I will still have to confirm my wish to connect, or have I missed a simple setting somewhere? I have chosen 'dial whenever a network connection is not present' option in the connection settings, believing the adsl modem is connected all the time. My other PC has the later BT Voyager 105 modem which works without seeing the connect prompt and has the same settings, but uses AOL as the ISP.
