I have PPP over Ethernet connection at home, so I have a dial up connection set up which comes up every time when I log in, so I can connect to the net by clicking on it. This works fine, but now I got a router which does the connection automatically, so there is no need for the dial up networking connecting window to come up.

Nevertheless it comes up everytime when I log in regardless of the living net connection already established by the router. It does not cause any error I only have to cancel the dialog, but it's a nuisance and I can't find any setting to make it stop.

Of course, I could remove the networking connection altogether, but I'd rather keep it, so I don't have to create it again if sometimes I need to connect to the net directly without the router.

Is there a way to stop the connection dialog from coming up without removing the networking connection?

  • Just remove the dial-in connection from your windows profile. – Ramhound Jun 12 '12 at 14:18
  • And how can I do that? I see only delete connection, but I don't want to delete it. – Tom Jun 12 '12 at 14:37

Open 'Internet Options' in your 'Control Panel', go to the 'Connections' tab and check the radio button 'Never dial a connection'.

Its very easy to do just open the Control Panel>Network and Sharing Center. Now select the Change Adapter setting from the left panel. Now the default connection should be tick marked with a green button and right click on it. Now right click on it and select Cancel as Default connection.

Edit in response of comment

If it is not set default there then you have to launch the Internet explorer and now open the Tools>Internet Option and select the connection tab. You can also go to Internet connections through control panel. Now here you have three option:

1: Never Dial A connection
2: Dial whenever a connection is not available
3: Always dial my default connection

You have to select the first option and click on apply.

  • It's not a default connection. I have a "set as default connection" item in the menu where you have the "cancel as..." item – Tom Jun 12 '12 at 14:34
