How do I set up AT&T High Speed Internet to automatically connect in Internet Explorer?

Learn how to set up AT&T High Speed Internet to automatically connect in Internet Explorer.


To set up AT&T High Speed Internet to automatically connect

  1. Click the Start button.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Select Control Panel.
  4. Click the Internet Options icon.
  5. When the Internet Options dialog box appears, click the Connections tab.
  6. Click the radio button next to Always dial my default connection.
  7. In the Dial-up Settings dialog box, verify the AT&T High Speed Internet (formerly FastAccess) connection is the default connection. If it is not, highlight it and click the Set Default button. The AT&T High Speed Internet connection appears differently depending on how the router is set up:
    • PPPoE (Connection Manager): PPPoE-AT& Note: If PPPoE-AT& is not listed, you must first connect using the Connection Agent interface to create it.
    • PPPoE (Enternet 300): AutoDial. Note: If AutoDial is not listed, either it is installed but must be enabled, or it is not installed and not available with the version of Enternet 300 being used. Autodial is a part of the Dial-on-Demand feature, which is available on later versions of Enternet 300, but not enabled by default by AT&T. Enabling it on these versions requires editing .ini files prior to installation, which is not supported.
  8. Click OK.
  9. Open Internet Explorer or Netscape and the Dial-up Connection window opens.
  10. Check Connect automatically.
  11. Enter your password in the Password field.
  12. Check the box next to Save password.
  13. Click Connect.
