I am home for the summer and sick of my family members leaving their computers connected on our 56k line, so then I have to go around and figure out which one is connected. There must be a program that will use my modem to clear the line and disconnect any modem thats connected, does anyone know how to do this??
THanks!

Nope, there would be no benefit to that. The cost of a wireless network to share a lightning fast 56k line?? :)

I just hate having to go find out who forgot to disconnect the latest time....

If you try to connect your pc a few times usually the line noise is enough to get the other pc booted. Some modems are better at this than others, I used to have an old ambienth modem that would kick a robotics modem 1st time, were as the ambienth modem would keep its connection for longer. Some mobile phones seem to be really good at losing the connection. When a freind of mine wants to get through she only has to call twice before I get booted......Dont you just love 56k dialups :rolleyes:

Thanks, but we have one line for the internet and one for phones. So the 56k line doesn't have any phones connected to it. I could connect one, but getting to this jack behind my desk would be as much work as just finding the guilty computer :D Thanks for the idea though.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
