Disconnect when connection may no longer be needed.

Start > Settings > Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections (tab) > Highlight the connetion you are using > Settings > Advanced > Check Disconnect when conneciton may no longer be needed > OK > OK and so on....

What browser?? The "built in" disconnect will only work for IE, Netscape users requires a different one.
Dialup Disconnect PROMPT:
http://www.ufaq.org/files/Rasexit.zip

To make Netscape prompt to disconnect DUN at shut down;

1. Put the program Rasexit.exe in the C:\Windows\System folder.

2. Double click on the file Autoclose.reg.

3. Go to your C:\Windows\System folder and double click Rasexit.exe.

4. Close Rasexit.exe.

5. Reboot computer.
