Automatic Dial-up

By paladin2 ·
My bios supports auto start-up in the mornings. It starts every morning at 6am. When I get up all I need to do is log-on to my ISP.
My question is this?? Can I set up my system to automatically dial-up my ISP during startup, and if so how??

Automatic Dial-up

Two things come to mind:

1. Try creating a shortcut to your dial-up networking connection in your startup folder (c:\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp). Make sure the connection will not require any intervention by saving the username & password when you create it. Also, be sure to open the dial-up networking folder, then pull down the Connections > Settings menu, and uncheck the box "prompt information before dialing."

* OR *

2. Drag an internet shortcut for your home page, or any internet page, to the same startup folder. Then make sure your internet properties are set so that a dial-up networking connection is established automatically. With Win98/IE5, use Control Panel > Internet Options > Connection Tab > and check "always dial my default connection."

I think either of those should work. Starting with the internet shortcut should save one more step.

Sincerely,
Chris Hajer

Do the above mentioned and make sure to have a script specifing your user name and password to internet account or simply fill username and password and check the remember password check box.
By the way the first is much more likely to use because of that if somebody goes and erese your password or mistype your user name you won't be able to connect to ISP.
So at the connection property point to the script you 've created and that's all
PS
in the script you may alter the username and password settinglike that
transmit "your_user_name" ^M
transmit "your_pass"^M
rather than the script's default
transmit $USERNAME,raw
transmit $PASSWORD,raw
that requires to fill password and user name before the connection

Hope helps

Put a shortcut to your browser or email program in your "startup folder". If your Mail and Browser are setup to automatically dial your ISP they will run the dialup for you and your system will be waiting when you get up?

Put a shortcut in your start up folder for your browser, IE or Netscape and check under prefs to see if your dial up connection is configured to start when you boot the browser. Also, make sure you save your username and password when setting up the dial up networking.
