Physically disconnecting the modem does not affect NetDial

I've pulled the plug on my modem, but your NetDial component continues to act as if it was connected. What's going on?

The netdial control will fire a disconnect whenever the modem determines there has been a disconnect. Some modems will not realize there has been a disconnect right away (when such an abnormal disconnection occurs) and continue to try to resolve the connection. You may want to try another modem or another computer.
