    newbie browser question
    Upgraded my wife's imac to OS X from OS 9.0. Formerly, when Explorer was brought up, Remote Access would start,
    and Explorer would seem to wait to find the home page until the dial-up connection was established. Now, when
    either Explorer or Safari is started (with Internet Connect set to start automatically), the attempt by the browser to
    find the home page times out before a connection is established -- "Server not Found". Is there a way to configure
    the browsers to either wait for the connection to be established, or wait longer to time out?

    Thanks.

    i believe that is a feature of remote access that Internet Connect does not have. Your best bet is to probably have the connection automatically connect on start up, and that way once your desktop shows up, youll already be connected, and wont have the Server Not Found error. although this way, youll startup will take longer since it has to wait for your dialup to connect

    Yeah, that's not a bad idea. But, after picking up the phone a couple times and hearing modem
    chatter, we'd probably go back to manually connecting first and then firing up a browser. Or maybe
    we'll just break down and get DSL or cable like civilized people.

    Thanks!
