Booth,

DHCP and/or routing entries probably changed.

When you do a dial-up it gets assigned routing entries (ROUTE PRINT to
see) and if they conflict with the routing entries for your
lan/Broadband things become unpredictable. If the dial-up shows a
network/netmask of 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0 that means that it thinks it can
route all network traffic through its gateway.

What you want is the dial-up to assign a private IP range and gateway
that does not overlap your own lan IP range. Depending on what parts you
have control over you might have to change your lan IP range to another
portion of the private blocks.

DNS for LAN and dial-up, Windows XP

For the longest time I was happily using dial-up alongside my broadband 
on my PC.  I could use the Internet for e-mail and even Client Access on 
a System i my PC, and at the same time be dialed into another System i 
on my modem.  It worked smoothly and seamlessly with no attention from me.

Then one day something changed.  No idea what, but something.  Since 
then as soon as I connect to the same System i with dial-up it 
disconnects my Internet connection.

Yesterday something occurred (again, I have no idea what) and it started 
a repair process and then said I do not have a DNS established.  I still 
can use either LAN or dial-up, but not both.

Does any of this make sense?  Has any one have any ideas as to how I can 
get both connections working again?
