You use dial-up. Are you also on a Network with DSL or cable ? I am not quite clear on how you are able to connect at Network Neighborhood, but go to IE Tools>Internet Options. Connection tab. Make your choice there...always dial my default connection ?
I am working through a dial-up connection. I was recently on vacation and came back to find that "someone" had been on my machine. Now Internet Explorer doesn't prompt to dial. It just pops up and sits there and even if I press reload it doesn't work. If I go to Network Neighborhood I can connect to the internet and then press reload and explorer works just fine. Any idea on how to reassociate the two???
