Maintain internet connection (ADSL PCI) while logged off XP

Hello,

I am looking for a way of keeping the internet connection active, even when logged off using windows xp and a hardware pci adsl modem.

Has anyoine done this before (using XP, hopefully not any other 3rd party software). Don't know if its possible to set it up as a system service or whatever... please get back!

Thanks,
James Beverley.

Can I ask why you want to do this? Understanding your reasons may then allow us to offer alternative options for achieving what you want.

It can certainly be done with an external Ethernet router.

If you enable "allow other network users to connect through this computer's connection" in the properties of the connection it should keep it active even after logging on, you may have to enable the "establish a connection" checkbox as well.

I'm using a USB modem and it works fine for me.
