Auto disconnect does not work, or the settings change

Solution: If the settings change, visit http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;Q230142

If auto disconnect doesn’t work, go to the advanced options of your dial up settings: in Internet Explorer, go to Tools > Internet options > Connections > Dial-up settings > Advanced dial-up settings, and turn on the option to “disconnect if connection no longer required.”

If that doesn’t work, open the Registry Editor, and navigate to
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\RemoteAccess\Profile\<Connection>
Now look at the following DWORDS:
EnableExitDisconnect
EnableAutodisconnect
If either one has the data of 00 00 00 00, right-click the value and select Modify. Change the data to 01 00 00 00.
Also check this registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings. Look at the DWORD: EnableAutodisconnect. If this value has the data of 00 00 00 00, change it to 01 00 00 00. Reboot your computer.
