    When launching IE, my modem connects fine, but I receive a message "specified server could not be found" and then my default web page does not come up. I'm still connected and can get on the web ok, but can't figure out why when I connect it just doesn't automatically to my default web page. Thanks in advance.

    Maybe the server for that webpage is down.

    Thanks...I think it is because it is trying to find the webpage before the computer has time to connect. (I tried some other default locations). No big deal. Thanks for the reply.

    Your computer MUST connect before it can send out a request for that specific webpage.
