Use a reputable configurable firewall to control internet access.

Time_wait is the state in which a connection waits for timeout incase of Active connection close.
Close_wait is the state in which a connection waits for timeout incase of Passive connection close.

You can view the full TCP state diagram at the following link:

It all depends on the IP address with which you have a connection.
If you have a good firewall, you do not need borther about your connections.
