Intenet Connect dials on startup

Discussion in 'Apple' started by Michael L Kankiewicz, Apr 25, 2008.

  1. Just did a new install. I am on dial-up. When I select "connect when
    needed" Internet Connect automatically dials up on startup. It *used to*
    dial up automatically only when opening an app (Firefox, etc). Is there a
    pref or something that I need to uncheck or change to stop it from dialing
    up on every startup? (While keeping "connect when needed")

    Thanks very much.

    Something that runs at startup is using the network. You can probably
    find what that is by looking at your logs, using the Console utility (in
    your Utilities folder). Most likely you'll find it in either the System
    or Console logs.

    You have some feature turned-on which (a) requires an internet connection
    and (b) is triggered at startup. For example, you have your Date & Time
    System Preferences panel with the 'automatically' option selected.
