When I close down IE my modem stays connected to the net, how can I get it to disconnect when I close IE? Also when connected, how can I easily find what speed I'm connected at?
Win XP Pro & IE 6.0
Thanks

In IE, go to Tools > Internet Options > Connections tab, highlight your default connection, click the Settings button, click the Advanced button then tick the box which says "Disconnect when connection may no longer be needed.
