    Angry Logging off

    I have connected Belkin Router to BSNL Modem. While I 'Disable' Router, it does not disconnect BSNL Modem from Service Provider. So I switch off the power to the Modem. How to log off from BSNL Modem after disabling Router?

    I am assuming the following connection method:

    Telephone line --> Splitter --> BSNL modem --> Belkin Router --> PC/Laptop

    1. If your BSNL modem is configured in PPPoE mode (and Belkin in bridge mode), it cannot be disconnected becuase PPPoE means "always on/always connected". The only way to disconnect is to switch it off.

    2. If the BSNL modem is configured in bridge mode (and Belkin in PPPoE mode), switching off the Belkin modem will automatically disconnect the BSNL modem session. You could also disconnect the Belkin session as shown by essbebe above. Connection will still be ON but no one will be logged in. But you need to switch off the Belkin modem in this case.

    3. If both, BSNL modem and Belkin router, are in bridge mode and you are using a dialer on PC/Laptop, disconnecting the laptop will disconnect the internet connection totally. But in this case, only one machine can access internet at a time.

    Frankly, I suggest switching off. Saves electricity also and protects modem from heating, etc.

    Thanks to all of you who have responded. I am not a technical person and hence do not understand many things. So I opt for "switch off" with the hope that when I switch off the power to the BSNL Modem, it logs off automatically from the Internet Service Provider (BSNL)
    Thanks once again

    If you had given the reason for your requirement,
    may be the replies would have been different.

    Short of learning Astrology
    ( In which the astrologer answers your queries according to the
    Planetary position at a particular time , if Kundali ( Horoscope) is not available, )or based on date of birth location )
    I try to guess / or do some "Mind reading"( without any wireless link!!) and post replies..
    Now if you had mentioned
    "I want to avoid excess billing" or
    " save on Electricity Bill"
    the replies would have been different!
    Anyway, sorry the replies did not help you, and hope some other user finds the info in this thread useful.

    If time permits, you can check the guides by @Just4Kix
    in "Broadband How to >>>>" forum , or select my signature link/s as needed.

    Some three years back, I was also in the same position like you and trying now to learn about Internet/modems/broadband etc.

    Thanks a lot.
    It's not from the angle of saving bill on electricity. But saving from excess billing on my limited usage.

    I do not want to remain connected to BSNL Broadband Service Provider when I continue to work on my PC on matters not connected with internet.

    The question is: Even after I 'disable' the Router, the modem continues to blink on "ACCT" This I take it that the Broadband connection is not logged off.

    I do not know whether I have been able to make my position clear.

    Option 1:
    you can pull out the RJ11 cable from the adsl splitter end, going to the modem "Dead sure" No internet connection !"
    Option 2 :
    Switch OFF the modem:same as above.

    Option 3 : Doubt
    "Handshake" data exchange possible Between modem/and server

    Disable the ethernet card (LAN) as mentioned earlier
    Try option 3 for 15 minutes
    and switch off modem power.
    Check in Usage portal data recorded for this
    15 minute block.

    Option 4:
    Use NetworX for hourly record.

    Thanks. But my problem will be solved if some of you can clarify whether my switching off the power supply to modem will automatically log off from service provider without a any technical hitch?

    YES. Modem power off/ no internet connection.
    To connect to Internet:
    Confirm you use a "DIALER"

    USERID PW entered in computer window.
    If so, Keep Password secret

    What is the tariff plan you have selected ?
    If you are so much worried:
    why not select an Unlimited plan ?
