    Automatic Dialup with ADSL modem

    Is there a way to make my ADSL modem connect to the internet at Windows Startup. The new AVG 8 does not seem to have the ability to update itself by dialing up as the previous version did? The advanced window does say "dial up this connection" but there is nothing there to check. AVG 8 tries to connect but fails until I connect manually.
    The other option is for my browser to connect automatically at startup. Any ideas?

    You could put a tick in "connect automatic" on the connection..then drag and drop it into the "startup" section in your start menu

    Thanks. Did something similar. Added my browser, which connects automatically, to Startup.
