Continues Dial-up Connection Prompt to Connect to a Network

For the last few days, I have been getting the continuous appearance of dial-up connection requests made by my computer even though there is no modem.

At first, I did not pay much attention to this, but at last, it started irritating my work.

A dial-up connection window asks me to select the service I want to connect my computer.

I am not using any dial-up connection on this computer.

It has a list of pre-configured dial-up connections (I made those connections in the past) and gives options to connect to any network or cancel it.

Even though I cancel the connection request, it returns after a few minutes.

So I decided to find out the reason for these continuous connection requests. The connection request is just like the image provided below.

Why Did I Get Dial-up Connection Prompt?

The default setting instructed my Windows PC to dial a new connection whenever there was an active network.

So, Windows automatically dialed for new dial-up connections. As a result, it displayed multiple instructions to create a new network profile and connect to it.

It was an unnecessary process by the Windows Operating System.

The problem was over after changing the default setting to -never dial a connection.
