    Why, when I switch users, (not log off) does my internet
    connection break? It's very annoying to keep redialing
    (nasty 56K!)

    According to MS article 305896 "SYMPTOMS
    When you connect to an Internet Service Provider (ISP)
    and then switch to a different user, the Internet
    connection remains active without displaying a message.
    STATUS
    This behavior is by design."

    I tried AT&T online chat....the guy said it was an MS
    issue.

    Any help is appreciated!
