    I don't think that can be done via a GUI option, maybe a reg trick or something but all "Connect to" options now point to the network icon the start bar next to the clock.

    You could set IE to start a connection.

    IE -> Tools -> Options -> Connection -> Set it your defaul & choose the "Always dial default connection" option.

    You'll be prompted with a dialler automatically when your PC tries to connect to an outside service but can't find a connection.
