Re: Connected on LAN but keep getting dial-up prompt
Look at the Internet Browser Tool menu/Internet option, and check the entry
to never use dialup.
Drag an icon of the Dial Connection to the desktop. Every time you want to
use DialUp double click on it and it would use the DialUp.
If it is still bothering you, since you do not use that often, you can right
click in the icon and disable the DialUp connector until you need it again.
