Two days ago I started having a problem whereby every time I click a link or Favorite the Dial up Connection window pops up asking me if I would like to connect. I close this window and then a Web page unavail message pops up asking me if I would like to connect. I click connect and am taken to the page I want. This is quite annoying. Prior to this I was messing with my network places trying to get a new machine on my home network. I am assuming I screwed somthing up, but I can't figure out what.
I use DSL with a modem connected to a Linksys router/gateway. My other computers do not have this problem just my main one :x

I assume u r using IE. Do one the followings:
- Install Firefox
- Internet Options -> Connections -> remove listed Dial up connections

Control Panel -> Internet options -> Connections tab.
In the dial-up and virtual private connections box, select and remove any listed.
Under that box select "never dial a connection"
This will force the connection to use the network.

If for some reason you dont get internet after this then rerun the internet connection wizard and follow the prompts.
