I have a Dell xps laptop with Win7 home premium. I have a wireless network connection through my netgear, as it shows when open the "network & sharing center." As the screenshot shows, there is an annoying "dial up connection" window that randomly appears while I'm using the pc. I can't access the inter net while this is there so I have to close it. Sometimes there are 6 or 7 windows on top of each other. How do I stop this?

In IE check the Internet Options under Connections. Is the Dial-Up set to Never Dial a connection? If not set it to that.

I'm sorry, I forgot to tell you I use Firefox. I searched for a similar choice in FF & found the following under tools/options/advanced/settings. Are they similar?

Control Panel is the other way to get to Internet Options. Control Panel - Internet Options - Connections tab - Never dial a connection.

I just set it as you suggested. It was not set to "no dial up," I changed it to that. I also noticed a "broadband connection" in the "dial-up & VPN settings box in FF. I deleted it. I guess it was constantly trying dial it up.I also set the FF proxy settings to "no proxy." I think the setting in CP will be the definitive one. I think this should work. If not, I'll be back. Thanks.
