IE. Tools/internet options/connections tab/settings/advanced, and place a tick in the box, "Disconnect when connection no longer needed". j.

the advanced button you need is in dialing properties.

yup that is where i am but the advanced tab is greyed out

It's the second "Advanced tab" near the bottom right of the page, next to the "Dial-up window.

In IE go Tools>Internet Options>Connections>Settings>Properties>Dialing tick Disconnect....

In OE go Tools>Options>Connection tick Hang up after sending/receiving

It may be your sever ISP Software that as altered the IE settings, and grayed out the one so you cannot mess with them It's done it with mine So there is now no box to tick about When no longer needed
