    Sometimes things hang. What happens is XP is trying to open a dialup
    connection in a window behind everything. Eventually I realize what's
    happening, find it and cancel it. Everything works fine until the next

    Anyone know why? Or, more to the point, how to get it to stop doing

    IE? Tools, internet options, Connections, Never dial.

    Let us know (me.) I to have the problem when my server drops the line.
    I have two instances of the dialup. One the windows uses and one I use
    to connect manualy. The windows proceeds, where as the manual requires
    me to hit the "dial" button to continue. I have never was able to get
    FF to dialup automatically.
