  • Run Dial Up Networking Silently in Background

    I have a Verizon Expresscard and an unlimited Data Plan. I use regular windows (win7) Dial-up Networking to connect. I also run Road Runner.

    I have it automatically dialing and it connects fine but i am wondering what i can do about these annoying pop up windows. Everytime it connects, redials or fails to connect it pops a window up.

    How can i get it to run silently in the background or atleast keep it from popping up on top of the road runner interface?

    Any ideas?

        Are you talking about the notification balloons that come up by the system tray or the dialogs associated with establishing the connection?

        Either can be suppressed, but how to do so is obviously very different.

        The DUN dialogs is all settings within the connectoid. I wrote a how-to about connecting to a bluetooth tethered phone via AT&T some time ago, and I believe it has the settings to suppress all, if not most of the dialogs.

        The announcement balloons can be disabled through the registry, I believe.
        Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
        How about the Wiki?

          I am not speaking of the balloon tips, it is the dialog boxes that come up. I noticed several boxes that can be checked that remove the need for user input... i.e. prompt for username and prompt for password but the dialog that keeps coming up is the error when it can't connect and it is retrying. I think it is error 629 or something. It happens when i am out of range.

          What section is that how to in?

            Hmmmm.
            The "failed to connect" error dialogs, I'm not certain how to surpress. I don't know if my setup did that, as I was mostly concerned with removing any dialogs requiring input like clicking CONNECT or entering a password.

            The how-to is a sticky in the Wireless Communications forum: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/wire...bluetooth.html

              Worst case scenerio, i can just use the Verizon Access manager but i was hoping to avoid that because it is a bloated peice of crapware. Since the card i have is a Dell branded card (5700 expresscard) there is a slim dell utility but i can only install it on approved Dell systems (kinda lame when the card is an external card)

              Maybe a third party DUN utlility that has better options???

                If each dial costs, then I can see their reluctance to NOT notify you.

                I can only speak for home-PC dial-ups where the "auto" number of retries could be set from zero upwards (default was often 3 for windoze - no wonder telcos loved them), etc etc.

                  [email protected] I forgot the mode, but there is a mode that puts the card into a always on mode. When you do it that way the card is no longer installed as a modem, but as a network card. Meaning if you disconnect you dont see that dial up [email protected] Instead you would just see a ethernet unplugged ballon or disconnected from wireless network icon, which is also a ballon. Let me get the name of the mode its called.

                    OK, its called NDIS mode. I dont know how Verizon's software works, but in Sprint Smart View you open options, then go to the Mobile Tab, then under connection type you chnage it from RAS to NDIS.

                    PS: With Sprint, when I put the card into NDIS mode, you do not have to run the bloat software ever again unless you want to switch back to RAS mode for some reason. It basically changes something in the modem which will stay saved. Once in NDIS, the Modem acts like a Virtual Network Card from now on.

                      I made a simple autoit script for a similar issue, you could give it a go..

                        I think you may be on to something. I have played with the NDIS mode because it said "always on" but for some reason or another (i didn't explore) it would not automatically connect so i was left without a connection.

                        I'll play with that mode.

                        Do you have experience with a similar card?

                          dialog box popup

                          I have the same issue and have been trying to find a solution. I am using verizon USB720 and have the system automatically connect at powerup. It will automatically disconnect after non use and will reconnect automatically on demand. The issue is a dialog box comes up each time.

                          I would also like to know if anyone has been able to bridge bluetooth to any cellular adapter? I can bridge bluetooth to ethernet so a bluetooth equiped computer can use web services on a remote machine. I would like to offer this as an option in my truckputer when on the move.
                          Thanks,
                          DNR

                            I used it on both my U595 and Merlin Card from Sprint. They both worked kind of different as each card manufacturer has different ways of using NDIS mode. Sierra prefers to install as a virtual wireless card, while the Novatel Merlin prefers to install as a wired ethernet card. Both worked very well and I disabled pop up balloons in Windows so I never saw anything. If it disconnects, it reconnects with no warnings.

                              Right now i am using the verizon client because NDIS mode didn't work too well. I'll try it again because i might have been doing somethign wrong. I still was required to configure internet explorer to dial a connection when no connection was present.
