Autoexec batch file

If you are wanting your dialup connection to start automatically when your computer boots up, adding it to the autoexec.bat is not the way to go. Just simply copy the dialup account from your dialup networking to your startup directory on the startmenu. If that doesn't work then the file ext. for a dial up networking is .DUN

Hope this helps.

Answer one if correct, best way I've done it has been to go into dialup networking, right click on the dialup connection and choose create shortcut. It will ask you if you want to creat ethe shortcut on your desktop, choose yes. At that point you can go c:\windows\start menu\startup and cut and paste that shortcut into there.

You won't be able to enter this into the autoexec because DUN is windows app, not a dos app.

I agree with the above answer as Autoexec runs before windows programs can start loading and Dialup networking is a Windows application . So The best you can do is to copy a shortcut of your dialup connection to the startup directory . you can do this by right clicking on the taskbar and sellecting start menu . then Advanced Button . Open Start menu and click Startup . Copy the dialup connection shortcut into the window on the right . APPLY / OK and restart . You should get the dialup connection screen at startup . Good Luck !

Well I agree with those solutions, but this is what I did using WIE.Goto options and check auto connect and everytime you start up it automatically connect. I hope this helps if not I tried it work for me.
