How to disconnect from the internet (free up your phone line)


You can disconnect from the Internet and free up your phone line by right-clicking on the small picture of two computers that can be found at the bottom right of your screen (this icon shows that you are currently online).

Windows taskbar disconnect

This will open a pop-up window with a short list of options. Click on Disconnect or Hang up. In a few moments the two computers will disappear and your modem will disconnect from the Internet.

Note: Windows XP users may not see the connection icon of two computers at the bottom right of the screen. If that is the case follow these instructions:

  • Go to your Desktop
  • Double click on the MyDigicom icon on your desktop.
  • Select Hang up.


Apple Macintosh

Apple users can follow these instructions to disconnect:

  • Click on the Apple icon in the top left of the screen
  • Click on Control Panels
  • Click on Remote Access (or PPP on some Macs)
  • Click on Disconnect

Alternatively, if you have the Control Strip feature activated you can click on the icon that shows an Apple Mac and a telegraph pole and click again on Disconnect.
