When you say "I switch off cable modem", do you mean putting it into "Standby" mode? If so, there is still a valid ethernet connection between the PC and Cable Modem, so it is still "connected".

If you are actually switching the Cable Modem off, this may be in breach of the Terms & Conditions. I don't know about the former NTL, but Telewest T&Cs require that the Cable Modem be permanently powered on.
