Ti Powerbook Takes Forever to Disconnect Modem - Mac Applications & Software

If I have a problem getting a connection via the modem, the second time it times out or gets interrupted, the modem enters the "disconnecting" state, and hangs there. Logging out, pulling the phone line, changing connections, trying to turn off the modem, even killing some processes doesn't budge it. It takes at least 10 minutes before it returns to normal. Is there anyway to force this without restarting the machine? A fix? Mark...

    Default Ti Powerbook Takes Forever to Disconnect Modem

    second time it times out or gets interrupted, the modem
    enters the "disconnecting" state, and hangs there. Logging out,
    pulling the phone line, changing connections, trying to turn off
    the modem, even killing some processes doesn't budge it. It
    takes at least 10 minutes before it returns to normal.

    Is there anyway to force this without restarting the machine?
    A fix?

    What country are you in?
    What country is your Macintosh configured for?

    Telecommunications regulations in some countries have restrictions on
    autodialing machines, of which your PowerBook is one. I wonder if
    you're falling foul of those.
