Disconnect if Idle
You can tell Internet Explorer 5 to disconnect your Dial-Up Networking connection if you are not using it. It's saved many a marriage--and phone bill numerous times. Choose Tools--Internet Options. Click the Connections tab to bring it forward. Then click the Settings button. A dialog box opens named My Connection Settings (where My Connection is the name of your dial-up connection). In the Dial-Up Settings area, click the Advanced button. Select the Disconnect If Idle For box and enter the number of minutes in the adjacent text box. Click the OK button three times to close the open dialog boxes.
