Step 7: Log off from your ISP (for AOL, see below)

When you are finished surfing the World Wide Web, you need to log off, or hang up. There are two steps to this, and it doesn't really matter in which order you do them. You need to quit the browser (don't just put the window away!) and close the modem connection, or log off. Quitting the browser does not close the connection; if you don't close it, it's the same as having your phone off the hook. (If you have cable or dsl, you don't need to log off!)

If you think you will be logging on again in a short time, like after lunch, you can close the connection, yet leave the browser open and waiting for you to log on again.
