Internet connection problems

  MICKY BOY 12:03 25 Feb 07

Hi All,

Have just up graded my internet connection with Orange. To live Box. What a performance as the installation CD they send does not work with XP very well. After spending a fortune on phone calls to their help line to connect manually. I have the following problems.
When I start Windows it automatically connects to the internet. How can I stop this?
Also when I go to start – programs. I have no connection icon showing on the screen. How can I fix this?
It also shows I am connected at a speed of 100.0 Mbps what does this equate to in Mb’s
I would appreciate any help as if I phone Orange again I might have to take out a bank loan.

Your connection speed is to the router only , that is the speed from the Ethernet port . Your PC will be connected to the internet right away because the router is never disconnected , that's just the way it is , why do you want to stop it ? That's the whole idea of an " always on " broadband .If you want to know the speed of your connection in terms of download click here.
