After adding Ethernet, IE still brings up the modem dialog
Posted on 2005-04-13
I've recently added an Ethernet card and a hard-wired LAN connection to the internet to my Windows 2000 box. It works just fine for email (Eudora) and other internet-connected things, but every time I run Internet Explorer, it still pops up the modem dialog.
How do I get IE to quit popping up the modem dialog and just use the hard-wired internet connection? I'll award 500 points to the guy who can tell me where and what the registry setting(s) is(are) to control this, as I've seen it on other machines, and it's very annoying.
