HiI plan to use B/B connection from my home comp.only. Hence, which is the better option - Dialler or autoconnect? Are there any pros/cons in either of the methods?

i prefer autoconnect coz i leave my computer on all the time. a dialer would be good for someone who logs in once in a while and would rather like the option of keep changing their passwords for security sake.

Yes, but the pwds can be changed if desired even in auto-connect right? I gather one has to go to http://192.168.1.1 for this.

If u need automatic downloading during NU, then leave it on dialer. That way u can switch on the modem and sleep peacefully without getting billed for exceeding free time (I do that only).

Can you give us a detailed method how you schedule the dialer and from where to download the dialer software?Most modems are configured to use the builtin dialer so what did you change in the modem page to use your other dialer?
