IM using windows XP..............

This just started about an hour ago

When I am online, happing surfing (as you do) with Netscape and decide to open Outlook express 6 I get "you arew currently working offline, would you like to connect now" If I click yes, it disconnects the modem and reconnects after a password prompt.

Likewise - if I am using Outlook Express and decide to use IE, the same thing happens

I only have one connection shown in my networks connections window, so Im assuming it is something I have set wrongly in Outlook and IE. Likewise, all the programs are connecting using the connection name.

Any Ideas?

It has been a while since I used either of these, since I stick with Mozilla, but you might want to check your settings in OE: Tools/ Options/Connection.

Ive checked the connection stuff in outlook and IE

It shows the same connection as Netscape uses. (Or at least - it shows the same named connection)

I appear to have fixed it (not sure how)

I went into outlook and deleted the connection

I then made sure IE had its connection deleted

Then I set up a new connection wirth the wizard.

It appears to work
