Delete the dial up?

  1. I am currently helping a friend download his definitions through my high speed connection since his dial up service to do this obviously takes forever. I have a hangup in terms of being able to use the LAN connection on the laptop, because I cannot get it connected to my internet due to the dial-up setting asking to connect using the dial up service each time. I would like to install the updates simply with my high speed without having to completely removing the dial up properties. Is there some way to change or disable the dial up?

    Yes in Internet Explorer's settings

    Press Alt (in IE7) to show the IE Menu Bar
    Click on: Tools-->Internet Options
    Click on Connections Tab
    Click on "Never Dial a connection"
    Apply OK

    All done :)

    Do the above again when reverting back
    Except this time select "Always dial"
