'always dial my default connection' has been selected, but it still won't connect automatically.

zzz2496: The modem is this one DM111Pv2 - Broadband DSL Modem -, it is connected with the PC with an Ethernet cable. It was designed when windows vista wasn't still out.
As for latencies the lowest i get now is around 25/30ms, while with the router (also Netgear, connected to the same modem) it was around 100/150ms. It could be an aberration, could be fault of the ISP or the test servers, i don't know.
Another reason i don't want to use it anymore is that i don't feel at easy with very near wireless sources.
