High-speed dialup, sometimes advertised as "broadband dialup", is an Internet service provider (ISP) feature that speeds up data transfer by using a special server, called an acceleration server, to act as a bridge between the user's dialup connection and a Web page. The acceleration server uses a fast broadband connection to request the Web page on behalf of the dial-up user. When the acceleration server receives the data it requested, it caches the page, compresses the data, and filters out any popup ads before sending the Web page on to the dialup user. To the average user browsing the Internet, the caching, compression, and filtering techniques can make a dialup connection seem up to five times faster than normal.
Check your settings here: Network Connections/Advanced/Dial-Up Preferences/Enable Auto-Dial by Location/Uncheck all locations.
To view the list of names and addresses recorded by AutoDial, type the following command at a command prompt:
To delete a name or address entry from the list: Start/Run/Regedit
You can delete any TCP/IP addresses that you see under this key. Note that AutoDial can use IP addresses, DNS fully qualified domain names (FQDN), and NetBIOS names.
