Dial-up to the Internet fails when LAN connection is enabled

    Help!!! I have a 2003 Server. To access the Internet, the only option is dial-up (too far to get broadband). There are 3 computers (XP) that connect to it. Active Directory is on and works fine. If the LAN connection on the server is disabled, and you run Internet explorer, the dial-up connection fires off immediately. The problem is that when the LAN connection is enabled on the server and you run Internet explorer, you can see that it's looking for the Internet through the LAN first then it tries to use the dial-up. Once the dial-up finally starts, the Internet does not work

    I have set the connection in IE to only use the dial-up. How can I set it up so that IE ignores the LAN connection? Furthermore, how can I share this dial-up connection with the other PC's

    Help!!!

    Thanks
    Moody

  2. Hi Moody,

    Have you run the CEICW-wizard?

  3. Hi Moody,

    Your answer is a real mystery to other readers, because you deleted the
    message completely.
    The CEICW-wizard is in the Tasklist of ServerManagement console on the
    SBS-server. It stands for Configure Email and Internet Connection Wizard.
    This todo list will guide you to everything you need to do to get your
    server working properly.
