I'm use to win98se and when I connect to my DSL I see 2 liitle TVs on the task bar. With Y2K I don't see them, can someone please tell me how disconnect from the Internet. Thanks

Start | Setting | Network and Dialup connections.

Double click your connection. Click properties.

Check the "Show icon in taskbar when connected" and then "ok" your way out. You will now see the two little "TV's" talking on your taskbar.

If you want to disconnect, right click on them and click disable. To reconnect go back through start | settings blah blah and double click your connection.

***If you have DSL, this is all a really silly thing to do.***

Just leave it on all the time. Grab yourself a firewall or something...Try blackice or zonealarm

Well, that was simple with your step by step. Thanks for taking the time to do that. Yea, I'll have to check out some firewall. Thanks again.:)
