There are times when my internet connection unexpectedly hangs up. I don't really mind that, because that's expected. But there are times when it seems to take forever to disconnect, that the only option for me is having to restart. Is there a way to "force quit" the disconnection process? Or is restarting the only option?

the genious agrees with me

it's (obviously) a time-out issue

just like in 'doz, you can change the setting
but (hahaha) he doesn't know specifically how

I'm currently using macdialup.com. One of those Mac-specific ISPs.

Patrick -----I have had a simular problem that I solved by disconnecting the phone cable, the modum knows right away that there is no carrier and shuts down. I also leave the line disconnected because my computer must get lonely and starts calling out about forty five minutes after I go to bed. leaving the phone line unplugged solves that from disturbing my sleep, and I know that no one is peeking around in my computer.
