    Hi,

    I hope someone can help me. What can I do to correct this issue:

    Problem: To connect to the internet, I have to manually call from the house phone to the isp to get the computer connected to the internet..

    How do I make it for I can call the ISP and connect by the computer?

    HELP WOULD GREATLY BE APPRECIATED...

    THANKS,

    Steve

    Control Panel, Internet Options, Connections, Settings Tab (under Dial-up and Virtual Private Network settings), under Dial-up settings- Properties, put in ISP phone number, Make sure in Internet Properties under the Connections tab that "Always dial my default connection" is checked and click on Set Default button. Also make sure under Internet Properties, Connections, Settings button, top of window-make sure the "Automatically detect settings" box is checked.
