Maybe dial up means different things. To me it means you put in a phone number right below the user id and password, and it dials a telephone number (adsl). Hey in any case he just needs to know how to have it auto logon right?

It isn't a dial up connection...I have a lady that I consult for and she has to connect to her broadband by using the dial up dialog...Verizon also uses this to diagnose broadband issues regularly...I am guessing that his builiding is routed somewhere in a mainframe to give people an internet connection. I would recommend buying a router and setting it up as PPPoE...should connect with no issue

Chris I knew it wasn't dial up (having done that for years) more than anything else its probalby already PPPOE, because its asking for uid and pword, and uses ethernet cable. thats why I asked if he had a modem (not 56K) and a router.

No biggie I didn't take it as anything harsh...anyways I really think getting a mode would be the best solution here...modems are invaluable as we are going completey broadband and that batch file that the OP might not work anymore if Microsoft changed how bootup works in seven in later builds. If anything make sure that the batch file is set to run as an administrator...also try to disable everything that is automatically starting uo besides the batch file...just to see if it is even working

jeepers, i think you guys are making this a bigger issue than it really is. i can connect just fine, i just have to initiate the connection after i boot. i was only hoping for a way to automate it so connecting to the network was part of the boot process. the batch file i made does just that, so i'll just keep using it.

thanks
