I'm setting up two user accounts in XP but lose the intenet connection when I switch from one to the other. I seem to remember there is a fairly easy way to overcome this but I've forgotten. Any ideas?

TweakXP.com - Fast User Switching + Internet Connection


"In Microsoft Windows XP, if you enable the Fast User Switching feature, multiple user accounts can log on to a computer simultaneously. There is an issue of the Internet Connection either dropping or prompting to reconnect when switching users.



This tweak fixes the issue. This enables a permanent internet connection with multiple users on your PC under Windows XP.





# Click Start --> Run and type regedit
# Navigate to this key :




HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows NT/CurrentVersion/Winlogon




# Then right-click the right-hand pane, select New/String Value.


# Name the value KeepRasConnections


# Double click the new key and set it to 1.
