    Post Want an information ??

    I am using Home500 plan. I want to know that since I am using the night unlimited scheme from 2-8am. Now if at 8am I shut down my computer but the modem is on (using PPPoE connection type) whether there will be any data transfer.

    Thanks in Advance

    If you really listen to me I'll say don't just switch off your computer, shut down your modem too.

    Ideally there should be negligible amount of data transfer to keep alive your connection but for BSNL, ideal scenarios don't apply.

    Is there any way to automatically switch off the modem using PPPoE connection type as when I switch on the modem the connection get started.

    You can not switch it off but you can disable the connection.

    once you shut down your computer then there would be no data transfer as you computer tranfer the data when you ask for any ... your modem does not automitically keep on transferring.

    Switching off everything is the best and safest option; but even if you switch off either device, that is OK. I am also assuming that there is only one computer connected to your modem.

    Also, if you have wireless network and you are not secured then there will be bandwidth theft.

    So my advise is turn everything off.

    By the way why do you want to switch the modem even after you have switched off the computer, i don't understand the purpose. If you had to download something then there is a point of keeping both. Why do you want to take unneccessary risk which we don't know. The best solution is to switch off both.

    yes dear the modem do transfer data in PPPoE connection. u can check this by just connecting and sit idle for 5 minutes and then disconnect ur connection and then logon back and see ur account usage and u will come to know that the modem transfers data even if u are not surfing anything.

    So the best solution is to switch off both the devices or switching off modem will solve the purpose.
