Can someone explain the significance of how these two options are
utilized?

Internet is for any dotted ip address or name (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx or
something.here.com), work is for any netbios or nondotted address
(mycomputer).

Thanks for the reply...guess I'm still confused...my setup on my PPC is
set to Connects To Work but I access the Internet thru my wireless
router which uses a dotted address.

Thanks for your patience.

This page, while written for the PPC 2002 OS, has a nice explanation of how
each mode, ie. Work or Internet, functions...

With my WM 2003 OS device I configure the Connection Manager for "Work" and
leave it at that...

Modify as needed for your version of the OS on your device...
