DUN does not start Automatically

By: Arie Slob

Sometimes your DUN stops Auto dialing when launching your browser, even though you didn't change any of the settings. There are many reports of this happening after installing Quicken 98/99, but it can also be caused by other third party products.

You have to edit the registry to correct this problem:

  1. Start the Registry Editor
  2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ System \ CurrentControlSet \ Services \ Winsock \ Autodial

    You should find these values there:

    Name Value
    AutodialDllName32 wininet.dll
    AutodialFcnName32 InternetAutodialCallback

  3. And also: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ System \ CurrentControlSet \ Services \ Winsock \ Parameters

    Where you should find:

    Name Value
    MSTCP ""
