1) Control Panel -> Network Connections
2) Find your connection. This is NOT your ethernet adapter.
3) Right click on the icon and select "Properties"
4) Uncheck "Prompt for name and password..." and Click OK
5) Create a shortcut in your startup folder. In your post you stated you already did this. Make sure you delete the old shortcut first.

The above instruction will only work if you are using XP's built-in client.

So, how do you connect now?  If you are connecting directly to your DSL connection, and using PPPoE, take a look at your options in the properties of the connection..  Should allow for an automatic Dialup to your ISP..

or maybe I just understand what your problem is here?  :)

do you have a router? is your modem a router as well? If so is it configured properly?

do you use a PPPOE client as Fatal Exception mentioned? if so placing this client in the STARTUP folder as 24BY7 suggested should do it.


what do you do to connect NOW? if clicking an icon -- move this icon to the start/program folders/startup directory......

Just a suggestion, but I would recommend you just get youself a real router to do this for you...  The router will always be 'connected' to your DSL, configured properly, and everytime you start your system, you will connect to the router (DHCP).  This will also offer you a layer of security for your internal LAN...  For less than $50, your problems are solved, and you secure your network at the same time..

Linksys is what I would recommend...

the window to connect does not come up when you boot up? after putting the shortcut in startup?
