Problems with moving from freeserve to adsl

I have a long standing connection via freeserve and a telephone link where Internet Explorer is said to be provided by Freeserve.
I recently set up a plusnet broadband connection. The adsl link has been set up but I cannot get access to it from windows as my windows me set up keeps trying to enter freeserve through IE which seems to be chained to freeserve.
What do I do to get on to plusnet?

Problems with moving from freeserve to adsl

Hi.

Only limited advice, but does it try to autodial? If so, open IE (suppress the dial attempt), then select Tools|Internet Options and look in the Connections tab. You will probably see a radio button selected to "Always dial my default connection". If so, select "Never Dial a Connection", click Ok, then close IE. It should now use the IP stack attached to your xDSL connection.

Re-opening should resolve your issue. If not, reply to this post with detailed diagnostics, and someone should be able to help Smiley
