10.5. Disconnect automatically when sharing an Internet connection

ICS is a great way to share an Internet connection with other users, but it can lead to a lot of unexpected online time if you don't configure the connection properly or other users generate a lot of unnecessary Internet traffic. If your connection isn't disconnecting when you think it should, there are a few potential problems to investigate.

10.5.1. Check idle time

First, you should verify that the connection is configured to disconnect after a specified idle time. See Section 10.4.3 to configure the connection to disconnect after a specified idle period. Decrease the idle time and see if the problem is resolved.
