Big problems with my internet connection. I ended up reinstalling. Of course it didn't help that my service provider barely spoke English and argued that my problem was that my modem wasn't connected properly. BS!!! <br>I'm connected now but I am getting a stupid message "Do I want to stay connected?" Yes darnit I do. How do I shut this thing up? I have DSL.<br><br><br><br>
I can't figure it out, Marg. I was hoping you'd say it was the ISP's software that you were using. What you're describing sounds more like the behavior of Remote Access back in pre-X days, where you could choose to have Remote Access ask you every so often whether you wanted to maintain the connection. But there's nothing like that in the PPPoE tab of the Network Pane. I also checked Internet Connect, just in case that was somehow being invoked, but that also doesn't have an option like the old Remote Access used to have.<br><br>Let me play around a little more and see what I can find.<br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

I seem to recall seeing an app on versiontracker that would keep a DSL connection active (get rid of the message) automatically. It was either versiontracker or macosxhints.com.<br><br>I'll look around tonight to see if I can find it.<br><br><br>[color:red]What? I don't understand. What?</font color=red>
