There isnt an option to disconnect.

Why wud u want to do so, if u cud simply switch off the modem when not in use and switchback on when u wanna use.

Hmm, there is a small knob behind the modem along with the cables/wires attached to the modem. Just push it down to switch off and up to switch on

then the problem with your drivers coz if after automatic discconet your OS doesnt diesonnect or closes the port then the problem is with the drivers also

Third party softwares r not recommended. The modem has an inbuilt program to set up the Internet settings i.e if u take it from BSNL.

even the dialup modem has the same technique
just turn off the knob at the back of the modem

OR OR

just pull out the power plug...:lol:

BTW did u mnt that every dial-up modem have a knob or only those provided by bsnl have knobs.

if its true then do u know whether D-link 56kbps modems have da knob or not.

Ethernet

Why dont you connect it through the Ethernet card then you shall not face any such problems and you can safely pull out the adaptor when you finish your work.

But i think the USB is much faster compared to Ethernet nah? and now i am able to execute "safely remove your hardware" option to remove the modem.Any another option ?

I was told by the fellow who setup my connection that the Ethernet method is faster and USB takes up more time and makes connection slower.

I searched on How stuff works and found out that though there are advantage of connecting it to a USB port, if there are other devices connected it can slow down your connection speed .

They recommend connecting it to a Ethernet card .

I quote them below
How Stuff Works said:
If you have read How USB Ports Work, then you know that a USB port has a maximum data rate of 12 megabits per second (Mbps). However, of that available bandwidth, an individual USB device can use only up to 6 Mbps. And if you have several devices attached to the USB ports and they pump lots of data, this competition may further lower the data rate.

An Ethernet card, on the other hand, connects directly to the computer's bus. Ethernet cards come in two flavors: one that accepts 10 Mbps, and another that accepts 100 Mbps.

If you are on a cable modem late at night with no one else sharing the line (see How Cable Modems Work for a discussion on sharing), the cable modem can run at data rates faster than 10 Mbps. In normal circumstances, however, a few megabits per second is far more likely. Taking this into account, you could install a 100-Mbps Ethernet card if you want the best possible peak performance. Also, an Ethernet card is likely to be more consistent, since it is dedicated to network traffic (as opposed to a USB connection, which may handle traffic from a number of devices). One difference is the ease of installation. To install an Ethernet card, you have to open the computer casing, while the USB option takes 5 seconds to plug it in.
