    Hi folks,
    When I try to setup my dialup connection, on my 98 machine, I get a Window offering 'Save password' and 'Connect automatically'. I've ticked on both, but every time I sign on it has the password stored ok but still needs me to select connect.
    Can anyone tell me how to have it the connect automatically stored? :rolleyes:

    Hi,

    Not sure if this is it, but try Tools, Internet options, Connections, and make sure the dial when an internet connection is not present is checked. Be sure to apply, then save it. If that does not take care of it, let us know.
