    I set up this DIR-655 last night, got everything working solid. The thing works great.

    I know very little about the meat and potatoes of networking, so all of the little details and what not that are available for modification are beyond me. This is why I need your help.

    I get this prompt when I'm pursuing the net, randomly:
    *click*

    It's quite annoying and some times does not allow me to a certain web site if it pops up.

    Any idea on how to remedy this situation? Much thanks.

    Also, if there are any pointers you want to throw my way as far as further streamlining this new network of mine, I'd certainly appreciate that too.

    Thanks again, OT :bigthumb:

    dont have windows, but you go into the dial up connections properties and tell it NOT to dial.. or it could be in ie's internet settings iono somone here should be able to check for you.

    Go to IE. Tools -> Internet Options -> Connections. Select never dial a connection.

    If you are not going to use the Blackberry anymore you can just delete the connection.
