How (exactly) are you connected? (Network/Modem?) If you are directly connected to a network, you could simply do nothing.  You won't be connected to anything if you don't use any remote resources (like Internet or a Server).  If you're dialing in, same thing goes.  Is there something I'm missing from your question that might help me understand...well...why you asked?

I am connected via a modem to an Internet Service Provider. My browser automatically connects me but then when I close the browser (ie4) it doesnt give me the option to disconnect the connection. How do I then close the modem link???

On the iMac to disconnect from a dialup internet connection using the Mac's internal modem, you simply go to the Apple menu, scroll down, and select Remote Access Disconnect. After a brief delay you should then be disconnected.
