    Default internet connect failing to save credentials

    why does internet connect fail to redial the pppoe connection when I reboot my imac?
    I disabled every other configuration template, even wifi, and only left this one on, and I HAVE checked all the options according to which the user name and password would remain saved, and the connection should be redialed when needed and all of that, but, still, every time I reboot, it gives me a server error, and, I have to click the ethernet icon, select open internet connect and then select connect and connect again............ What????
    why can't this be made automatically by mac os x just like ubuntu 8.10 does?
    dang, I never thought I'd see the day when linux outruns mac at accesibility...........
    people nowadays just don't have that much time for doing everything manually.
    I believe that the world prefers streamlined computing environments rather than choppy manual ones.............

    the user name and password are stored in the appropriate fields, but the os just fails to use them or something. I don't have to write them again when I reboot, but I'd just like it to go automatically........
    and NO, I am not planning on having my iMac hibernate like a bear.................

    Then good for Ubuntu linux. What it does is that it redials for you, which should be avoided because some PPPoE connections are paid by the hour, if I'm correct. And since you said you have quite a few computers, why not just get a router, and just resolve it there? Then you'll a DHCP-computer connection, which doesn't need to have you redial every time...

    Oh, and by the way, even Windows doesn't have this "feature", so quit whining... we're all tired of you here.

    1) Control Panel -> Network Connections
    2) Find your connection. This is NOT your ethernet adapter.
    3) Right click on the icon and select "Properties"
    4) Uncheck "Prompt for name and password..." and Click OK
    5) Create a shortcut in your startup folder. In your post you stated you already did this. Make sure you delete the old shortcut first.


    sooooooooooo, heres one thing that windows can do and mac cant (in terms of gui easyness)........................... booooooooooo ya
    (of course, mac can do that only if you know your way around applescript............... WHICH MOST APPLE USERS DONT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! see my point now? windows is so much-more time saving!!!!!!!!!)

    Oh, for god's sake... If so many problems are cropping up, REINSTALL. THAT"S THE STRATEGY EVEN WHEN DEALING WITH WINDOWS. So STFU, and go fsck yourself.

    Either way, something is wrong with your installation. If your Mac will not remember your PPPoE connection, something is wrong with your system. REINSTALL. Geez.

    I can't reinstall. I don't have a cd/dvd, and I am not planning on neither pirating one or buying one. sorry.

    and, just a quick reminder, when IS able to automatically redial a pppoe connection, and it does that very simple by the easiness of a few clicks.

    For that you might like to try Automator.

    As for an OS X DVD you can borrow/lend one...
