Default tether problem vista

Please Login to Remove!

I had the guy at tmobile talk me through on how to tether my phone and it it is amazingly quick. but now even though im currently on a wireless connection the comptuer keeps trying to connect through the phone and i keep getting a dial up screen. ive disabled the phone as being the defualt connection but cant find a way to make the wireless my default. Im not really sure if this is the right forum but ya. so does anybody know how to make the computer stop trying to use the dialup connection?

off of the top of my head (no vista to look at right now, mostly the same as XP)...

you need to go into IE's internet options (even if you dont use IE) then the connections tab, then select "never dial a connection"
