On some systems it can take a long time to connect to the Internet, you can decrease the time required to connect to your ISP by trying these simple steps.

Open the Dial-Up Networking folder, right click on the icon for your ISP and select 'Properties'.

Chose the 'Server Types' tab, and then under Advanced Options uncheck the 'Log on to network' box, and make sure that 'Enabled Software Compression' is checked. From under Allowed Network Protocols uncheck 'NetBEUI' and 'IPX/SPX Compatible'.

Next time you connect to your ISP, the connection should be a little faster.
