    Disconnection phone-based internet connection at specified time?

    A good friend of mine needs a software solution to disconnection his phone modem based internet connection at 7am. He aims to turn on his computer and get online shortly after his wife falls asleep. He needs the computer to go offline at 7am because his wife wakes up before he does.

    any suggestions?

    Hmm...I've come across some that log on to DUN at a specified time, haven't used it, but I've seen it.

    But if you want to take another approach, if the modem is an external modem....plug it's AC into a timer, control it via power to the modem.

    that would certainly make it easy, i'm afraid it's pci though.
