Check the settings under "your account" on the web page.
One of them is this option: Disconnect when done?
(matters only if you have a modem, ISDN or VPN connection) yes . As you can see mine is set to yes, but I have cable so it makes no difference to me.

Try going into Options, Options, Connection, and setting this to the LAN option.
