Dialup IE6

07-10-2005, 12:16 AM
This is a different computer to the thread "ntldr is missing" above.

Before I upgraded from W98SE to XP I had IE6 automatically firing up
the dial up network connection.

I've had to re-install and all I have is two independent connections.
I can use both of them but they won't integrate.

Has anybody any tips.

Thank you.

Work offline disconnects the application from the internet. Internet
Explorer (IE) and Outlook Express (OE) share this setting. Activate in one
program, it will be active in the other and the other way around. "Work
offline" overrides an "always dial" setting.

Workaround: whenever you close the browser OR Outlook Express, check that
this setting is not marked, then close.

If you want IE or OE to dial in automatically on startup, place a shortcut
to one of the programs into the Windows > Start Menu> Startup folder.
