Will Not Save Dial Up Password...HELP!!!!

Just started to set up and use Windows 7 and as I am still on a Wanadoo (Orange) dial up broadband connection modem, it will not let me save my dial up password as every time I switch between the various accounts I have to keep entering the password manually - please tell me someone has a fix for this

Also when yiou load Internext Explorer how can you set it up so that it automatically dials the connection?

Thanks in advance.....

Windows 7 & 8 64-bit, Mac OSX 10.8.2

1) Open the Network Connection folder ("Start > Run" type ncpa.cpl and click OK), right click the dialup connection and select Properties, then the Options tab. Tick the box for "Prompt for name and password, certificates, etc". Next time you dial, the dialog box that opens will let you save the Username/Password for All Users.

2) In Internet Explorer's menus, go to "Tools > Internet Options" and select the Connections tab. If you have more than one connection, set Orange as the Default. Then select the radio button for "Always dial my default connection".
