Hi All,I am having an urgent query...here it goes...I have an Airtel Broadband 699/- connection on Beetel 220Bx modem + X-Micro WLAN 11g (with wireless Access Point i.e.) I have connected the entire system and the net is running fine on my desktop as well as on the wifi of the lappy...The thing is that earlier i used to login the internet via a PPoe dialer on windows XP (which i had created).Now since the router is doing the logging in , the net is connected even if i don't need it (which I think is NOT a good idea!) ... and if i disconnet it from the desktop, the laptop's internet gets disconnected too..I would like to avoid giving in my PPPoE Login settings in the router, rather have a dialer on both the desktop and the laptop...but I have doubts about simultaneous connections to the internet then...Can this be done?

I don't think simultaneous logins are possible from Laptop and PC.You can enable "disconnect after x minutes" setting on router. That will make router disconnect net if connection is idle for more then x minutes.

^ agree with that.... what's the point disconnecting if you have an unlimited connection? If security is your fear, then perhaps you need to read up on firewalls and antivirus programs (there are several programs available even for free on the internet).However, if you are especially paranoid (say your work is very sensitive), then you can go to Start | Control Panel | Network Connections and make a shortcut to your Local Area Connection on the desktop. Then when you are done working on the internet, just right click on the Local Area Connection icon in the system tray and click Disable. When you want to start it again you can just double click on the shortcut you created above.Disconnecting/Connecting using this method will not affect the connection on the other computer.

what do u mean by saying that?

A senior who doesn't knows that in PPPoE mode, you don't have to dial the connection, the router automatically dials the connection! :rofl:
