    I dont know what your OS is and I am not sure that is a standard option. Usually that is a result of another program. You could try going through the programs that were listed at the time at the bottom right of your screen and see if there is an option connecting.

    Here is a soution for you:

    this will get ie to do things the way you like:

    find the windows startup folder then shrink the window so you
    can see your desktop then copy IE icon into startup folder.
    And make sure it set to connect automatically, then
    whenever you start you pc it should run ie and connect right

    Hope this helps
