Hi Huxley,

If I connect with my noisy podunk phone line and AOHell and try to download an MP3 file, it will usually disconnect before the 18 minutes are up, all automatically. --- LOL

I had to throw a bit of humor in here as I'm runing new RG6 cable right now for my new cable modem.

Someone else will answer professionally, but I don't think you can do what you want.
good luck,

As I recall, you can set your modem connection to drop after a certain period of inactivity. I cannot check since I don't have a dial up modem. Probably take a look at modem properties.
