    Auto disconnect from IE (IE 5)

    My colleague has recently found that when he closes IE it doesn't disconnect the modem automatically as it used to. Neither he nor I can find anywhere that specifies an auto disconnect when closing IE.

    We are not aware of having set anything differently on the PC.

    The OS is Win 98. Can anyone point us in the right direction for setting the auto disconnect we are both used to please?

    Thanking you in adavance.

    Best regards,

    Glenn.

    Hi, Glenn ~

    Try this:<UL><LI>In Internet Explorer, click 'Tools' on the menubar and select 'Internet Options...'
    <LI>Click the 'Connections' tab then the 'Settings...' button
    <LI> Click the 'Advanced' button in the 'Dial-up settings' area
    <LI>You should have a small 'Advanced Dial-Up' window and then put a check mark in the box next to 'Disconnect when connection may no longer be needed', then in each of the next few small windows, click 'OK', then 'OK', then 'Apply' (unless it is greyed out) and then 'OK' again.[/list]

    Hi Bruce

    Thank you for this. I knew it should be there somewhere, I was just looking in the wrong place!

    Best regards,
