It used to work just fine.  I made some kid of shortcut or I just dragged the connection icon into the startup area on the programs menu.  XP Pro of course and I always have used the built in connection wizard.

We reinstalled and now it no longer works.

I need broadband connection to launch automatically.  I even tried scheduled tasks for both startup and logon and it doesn't work on one and says it works on the other but in reality I have to manually click it every time and then it logs into DSL right away with the username and password.

What can I do here guys?

No, I already have that.

The point is that it doesn't launch automatically nomatter what I do.

I will try to recreate it and see if it's any better.  Doubtful but I'll let you know soon.

I'm awarding the points as I did recreate the connection and placed it into the startup area and restarted and waited and waited...

It actually did launch and I think the problem was that I was being too impatient if you call a 2 minute boot on a fresh install impatient.

Anyway, thanks for answering.

Now I need to handle the 2 minute boot where nothing happens when it hits desktop...
