    I don't know about your dsl but mine uses PPPoE which means I have to provide a username, and pass wo logon on. I know have a router which is always connected so I don't logon anymore, but before I had the router I set up the connection like this.

    Go to Start-->Control Panel-->Network Connections--> Then clicke on Create a new connection

    I used the wizard to setup my connection that way. The other way to do it is how memory suggested. What I usually do though is make sure that its set to never dial my connection unless I'm connecting, because I have some programs that need to connect to the net sometimes, and when they do it causes the connect to box to appear, which might be in the middle of a game.

    Hope I helped you some
