I am deliberately in this section for this as I have not a clue so.....
computer (not mine) is on a LAN NTL cable BB connection;it is 'instantly ON' when booted up and needs, if possible to be programed to ?give a dial up box? or connection box so that it can be safely opened and run OFF line and put ON line when the user wishes;
wirh my BT BB I can do this; but how, with a LAN can (can it?) this be achieved?
You may be able to disable the LAN card. Go to 'Connections' and find the LAN. Right click on it and chose Disable. If you have a small icon in the Taskbar showing the LAN connection then right click on this and chose disable (or if not an option chose Status and disable there). Enable is the same as disable but chose enable.
I had a brief streak of inspirtion on this one and opened up OE on two profiles and disabled 'send/receive at start up 'option it is a comp I am TRYING to keep OFF the net pro temp; I have yet to find out if my trick has had any effect
