I have window xp and cable hi-speed provider by Comcast. It is a direct connection (on all the time)I'm trying to make the connection like ..when you use dial up connection that you make a username & password to connect to the internet, well I really don't want the internet connection on all the time.I know that i can Disable the local connection, but still the modden (online) light still on. I want to be disconnect from the internet completely when I log off from the internet or when I disable the connection and been able to make a username & password to connect to the internet..If there is a way to do it? please help Thank Y ou in Advance

i've just got to ask why? nothing you do on your computer is going to make the modem disconnect from the internet (especially not with cable)...the best way would be for you to just unplug the modem when you're not using it...

but if your LAN is disabled (and that's how you connect to the modem)...then effectively you're not connected to the internet
