Default automate connection wizard

i have been asked to write a script that will automate the new connection wizard process (which connects to isp dialup account). This is necessary because some people just dont get this "interweb" computer thing

First of all is this possible? (it should be cause i see a new connection after installing my isp)

will vb be the best choice?
How can i do it?

I don't think it is possible.
You can only automate those things for which those who wrote them provided exposed properties, methods, etc.

I believe that the best course for you is to write your own application (VB would be fine) to gather info from the users, providing them with choices, etc., and then to create a connection out of that information.

When i install netzero for example i usually see that a new network connection(called netzero) has been created in the network connection area. Maybe it is done by using a functionality in a package creator? maybe installshield?
