View Full Version : Internet Auto Disconnect

What is the DOS command for disconnecting automatically from the internet?
My phone rings at 2.30 am in the morning, and there is only one line in here. So, if I can schedule my PC to go onto the net at say 1 am, and then off at say, 5 am, I think I will have the problem licked because the phone won't ring!
Of course, it must automatically disconnect as well for sometimes my boss wants to ring me if I am late for my early morning starts!

Why is your phone ringing at 2:30 am ???

I've got a freeware web timer called Web Time (natch) that can be set to disconnect from the internet at a scheduled time.

Don't know how you would get on the net first, though.

Susan, Thanks for that. I will now do a search on the Web for 'Web Time' and install it if found.
IE has an automatic web connector......(I think it's activated by tools/connections within IE.)
