The procedure for defining the default network connection may be useful to the computer user when it is necessary to create a connection with the selected computer over the network, if there is no already established connection. The execution of the operation allows the use of any account.
Use the "Start" button to open the main menu of the Windows operating system. Expand the Control Panel node to launch the Network and Sharing Center.
Open the "Network and Internet" section and use the "View network status and tasks" option.
Specify the "Manage network connections" command in the "Tasks" section and open the context menu of the selected connection by right-clicking.
Specify the "Make the default connection" command and wait for the green connection status mark to appear.
Go to the main menu of the system to perform an alternative operation of assigning the selected connection as the default connection and go to the "All programs" item (for Internet Explorer).
Launch your browser and open the Tools menu in the top toolbar of the browser window.
Specify "Internet Options" and select the "Connections" tab of the dialog box that opens.
Specify the selected connection in the list and use the "Default" button (for Internet Explorer).
Open the "Service" menu of the upper toolbar of the browser window again to configure the operating system to determine the selected default dial-up connection and select the "Internet Options" item.
Select the "Connections" tab of the dialog box that opens and apply the check box next to "Never use dial-up devices" to prevent automatic use of the default connection.
Use the "Use when not connected to the network" option to suggest choosing a default connection, or use the checkbox next to "Always use the default connection" to prohibit the use of other active connections.
Confirm your choice by clicking OK and close the application (for Internet Explorer).
