    i dunno if this will work, but you go
    start > logoff > switch user
    to my knowledge, this doesn't log the other user off, it just logs into another account

    if you create the same dialup account in both user accounts I think it may allow you to stay on. Also in the properties of the dialup make sure it says that other users can use this account. I don't know if that will work but give it a try

    k thx for ur suggestions guys...

    i got it working.
    what you have to do is:
    - make sure you have the same connection/settings in both accounts(which i had)
    - set it as the default connection in both accounts (i only had it as default in mine)
    - check "always dial my default connection"(i had "dial whenever a network connection is not present)

    after doing all that, simply go to Log Off> Switch user, and if all of the above is the same in both accounts, she'll be shweet!;)
    :cheers:

    i have tried this method, and it does not seem to work.

    all 3 user accounts have Telstra as the default connection, and its set to always dial the default connection in all accounts. a shortcut is in the "All Users" profile. do i have to make a new connection in every account for this to work?
