Request to connect

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.

for starters, I would go in and remove your old dial-up connection. (unless you need it for some reason)  I would also check under connections - never dial a connection.  That should work.  Also check in your LAN settings, and see if it's set to auto detect settings. (It's not very often you need to manually set this up)

Good Luck!

Like eccs19 mentionned, go to Internet Options in control panel and make sure that under the Connections Tab, there is a dot in NEVER DIAL A CONNECTION, go to LAN SETTINGS (bottom right) and uncheck anything there...Click on Ok and then click on setup...this will setup the connection like you want it...that is on High speed...go through the setup and than your pc should connect with high speed...if the dial-up connection comes up again, just go network connections folder in control panel and remove it. After its removed go to start-run- and type INETWIZ and go through that simple internet setup.
