Article ID: 40436234

Symptom

Changing the default setting in Network Management from ‘My ISP’ to ‘My Work Network’ does not persist after a cold boot. NOTE: This setting is accessed via the Start menu-->Settings-->Connections tab-->Connections.

Facts

Any hand held computer with Pocket PC 2002 or Pocket PC 2003, for example, PPT8800, MC9000, etc.

Resolution

In Network Management, the default setting is ‘My ISP’.

Create a registry file to make these changes cold boot persistent.
  1. Create a text file called connections.reg containing the following:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ConnMgr\Providers\{EF097F4C-DC4B-4c98-8FF6-AEF805DC0E8E}\HTTP-{18AD9FBD-F716-ACB6-FD8A-1965DB95B814}]
"DestId"="{436EF144-B4FB-4863-A041-8F905A62C572}"
"Enable"=dword:00000001
"Proxy"="new-inet:1159"

 
     2.   Place the .reg file in the Applications folder to make these changes cold boot persistent.
 
NOTE: After a cold boot, the setting may still be displayed as ‘My ISP’ but in actuality, it is set to ‘My Work Network’.  A test can be performed by connecting to the “work network” to verify this.
