I've enabled preference mode for IE in an OU to allow for users to have access to setting print margins. Some how (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306936) the "Enable Autodialing" was also turned on.....Our users would then open their browsers and it would tell them they were offline and tell them to choose a dial up connection even though they are connected to the LAN.

I've unchecked "enable autodialing" in advanced setting according to this KB:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306936
However I still have users that are having this issue despite following the KB directions...
Other users in the OU dont seem to be effected.....

HELP!
GReg GP editor - preference mode checked Preference mode advanced - Auto Dial DEselected.... Preference mode advanced - Auto Dial DEselected....

If you haven't already, please check this on one of the problem machines:

Click on the Tools menu
Click on the Internet Options menu item
Click on the Connections tab

Make sure that "Never Dial a Connection" is selected. It c ould be that on some of the systems the "Always dial a connection" selection was made by the policy that you fixed.

go up to your group policy (first pic) and go into the connection GPO.  Then in connection settings check the box for "Delete existing Dial-Up Connection Settings"...
