Sorry but why not just turn off "always dial a connection" my computer never
dials unless I tell it to.

IE tools>connections Dial up settings box and change the radio button to
never dial a connection.

To connect you just go to the dial up connections and tell it to connect.
Put a shortcut to your dial up connection on your desktop.

It wont dial again unless you tell it to.
