>> Out of interest, in an ADSL modem/router, when logged into the web/management interface and you choose "Disconnect", I guess this only disconnects the PPP session and it doesn't send that signal to the DSLAM (i cant remember the name, was it "last breath" or something?) which suggests the link has been properly terminated as opposed to a loss of sync etc

I think it depends on the router + firmware in use. 

ATM Im using a voyager 2100 on which "disconnect" only stops the PPP session as you say.   
However on some other routers (such as the SAR110/ Voyager 205 etc) you actually stop "the loop".
If I do this on my SAR110, then the sync light actually goes out too.

Ive no idea though which routers do what.

Chris, you have to remember it's "Need or Want" ?
Or is that for a signature on the next cheque  :-X

Actually I forgot we even had signatures because I always have them turned off.
