Internet Explorer 8, connection settings disabled

In the far 2007 I wrote a post about the connection tab disabled in IE6. Now after some years even here at the customer everything is migrated up-to IE8. The result is that the Connections Tab is enabled but not the “LAN Settings” button and its items in child window (Automatic Configuration and Proxy server) are disabled.

Easy as drinking a glass of water once you know which registry key to edit.

  • Take the content from the PDF and copy-paste into a .reg file.
  • Close all instances of IE.
  • Double click on it.
  • Reopen IE
