Windows 7: frustrated with dial-up broadband

frustrated with dial-up broadband

this is driving me nuts. things were ok in 7100, then in later builds my dial-up broadband connection didn't remember my password so i had to connect with a batch file.

now, the password sticks, but the dialup won't connect automatically. if i do nothing, about a minute after i boot suddenly skype kicks in the dialup and things connect after about 30 seconds of spinning. this is fine if i power up then go make some coffee or something, but it's torture if i'm sitting there waiting to get online.

what can i do to speed things up? i want to connect on boot...

well, if you want to spend some money buying a hardware solution, i would invest in an adsl broadband modem/router.

these devices are generally left on 24/7 and connect to your pc by a network cable - so you are connected as soon as you turn on your computer.

another advantage is that many pc's can connect too - wirelessly too if you get the right router...

hope this helps

this advice assumes the telephony system in hungary is similar to uk

By dialup broadband do you mean asdl, or pppoe? I haven't heard of asdl thats 30Mb/20Mb so whats the setup?

Not dial up then right. Probably PPPOE. where does your cable go to outside? to you have a router, or modem?

as he says that he have to dial to connect to internet so i guess he is using his telephone line to connect to internet.

You know I dont think either of us knows. He says dial up. Ok I have never seen dial up (adsl) at 30Mb/20Mb. He says He has an ethernet cable. Dsl uses pots cable. Im trying to pin down what he has, where he puts the uid and pword.

I have a high speed internet connection. But whenever i turn on my pc, i have to open my browser to login to ISP page using the user ID and Pswd, after logging in, i can browse the internet. And when i shut down my pc, i click the logoff button.

haha ok guys i'm back.

as i said, no modem. there is a literally an ethernet cable coming through a hole in the wall from outside in the hall, and i plug it straight into my computer. not sure where it goes from there. i think they wired the whole building before we moved in, then when i signed up, they just connected me into the system.

when i say 'dial' i don't mean it literally. i just have to sign in every time i boot.

PPPOE sounds familiar, i think when i set it up that's what i had to choose...

edit - no dinesh, i don't have to log on to my isp's page to sign in. that's why i used the phrase 'dial up'. it reminds me of an actual modem dial up dialog box...

edit2 - back in build 7229 when my password wouldn't stick, i used a batch file with the rasdial command to connect. dunno if that helps? i guess i could use that again, but i was hoping for a more 'elegant' solution
