I have a DSL connection. When I plug the lan cable in everything looks good.
The icon says "connected." I can even pig successfully from the command
line. Dialup works too. But I can't set up the Broadband connection. I'm
doing it the sane way I have for other computers (from tools>internet
options> setup > then I choose "broadband in the New Connection Wizard.
What's wrong?

XP "Remembers" how to get to the Internet. If you LAN is active,
change the option in connections to

"Dial whenever a Network is not present".
This tells XP to defer to a live LAN as the preferred access method
and if it isn't plugged in, then use the Dial-Up connectoid to get on
the Net.

Check you LAN/LAC by opening Network Connections and look
for instances of Local Area Connection.

Hi Steve,

Setting up a Broadband connection you do not have to use the set up. You
should use the internet options > connections > LAN Settings and it should be
set to detect proxy settings automatically unless you have spent a couple
thousand dollars on your own proxy server, which I doubt.

Also with DSL you have to set up your modem with a username and password so
that it will connect it is not like a cable connection where you just have to
see the modem to be connected to the internet. You can access your modem via
an IP address in the internet explorer address bar but you probably don't
have its IP address. My advice is to call your DSL Service provider and they
will walk you through how to do this on the phone, but I hope you're good at
hearing and understanding because a lot of the support desks are located
overseas. Good Luck,

Joe Kemco
