Typically if you go into ie\tools\connection\ or control panel to internet options and select your default dialer to always dial my default connection it will dial the default connection when you click on netscape icon. It works both ways whether you click ie or netscape. Netscape didnt include this setting in their preferences and relies on the os to bind the dialer. If all else fails create a dialer and put short cut on desktop. ( I prefer this method to determine if browser problem or dialerissue, easier to troubleshoot)

The problem with 7.01, is that it connects before it loads the browser, or at least it does on this PC.
There is something that went wrong in the initial setup of 7.01.
A reload may be the quickest solution, if you have the setup file on the hard disk.
I still run 4.71 and 7.01 alternatly, because I prefer some features of 4.71 for some sites.
Will investigate further, if I have time.
Regards, Chris
