In your Internet Explorer Properties Connection tab, uncheck the
"Dial whenever a network connection is not present" field.

Uncheck the field that says remember my password, that way it can never dial in, because it won't know the password.

check where it say's 'never dial a connection'. That way you will have to manually connect when you need to go online.
