open modem connections pop-up window

By buehner ·
When I exited the internet on my old computer, I used to receive a pop-up window that said "There are open modem connections. Would you like to close them?". How can I get this nice feature to pop-up when I exit the internet on my new computer.

The pop-up windows you speak of comes from your browser and will only appear if you originally dialed through your browser. If you are using Internet Explorer, make sure that under the TOOLS/OPTIONS/CONNECTIONS page, you have told IE to dial the connection using your preferred Dial-Up Networking account. When this is set correctly, to get on the Internet, you simply start IE, and it dials for you. When you close IE, the pop-up window you were looking for should be back. Good luck.
