the simplest way to think is that your internet is always connected, whether the browser is open or not.

 

The only way it isn't is if you go to the computer icons and disconnect, or unplug your modem. If you have a dial up connection then that you connect and disconnect, but closing the browser doesn't do that. but broadband connections are constant.

 

next time you start your pc howver the mouse over the computer icons and you should see it automatically connect as soon as PC starts.

 

Closing a browser just stops you from viewing websites, it doesn't stop you from being connected to the internet.

 

 

 

The cable to my TV is always connected too.

Yet there's a button at the top of my remote that still turns it off.

And turning my cable off also does nothing to disconnect my cable.

It just turns it off. Like clicking the red box with the white X turns my internet off.

Well I'm sure you do something similar to turning on your "browser" in order to connect to the internet.

 

he would have to have a P2P programme open to download the music, but that isn't a browser.

 

If I don't have anything open on my computer I am still connected to the internet.

 

If you close your internet browser and then go to your control panel, go to Network and Internet then choose network and sharing options (this is windowws 7 might be worded differently on whatever OS you have) it will show you being connected even though all you have open is control panel.

The terms Internet and World Wide Web are often used in everyday speech without much distinction. However, the Internet and the World Wide Web are not one and the same. The Internet is a global data communications system. It is a hardware and software infrastructure that provides connectivity between computers. In contrast, the Web is one of the services communicated via the Internet. It is a collection of interconnected documents and other resources, linked by hyperlinks and URLs.

The best example was the picture of the modem with the green light next to "online" close your browser and see if the light stays on.

 

 

End thread

 

but the light stays on when i turn off my tv and cable too, so are you trying to tell me all of my everything is on forever?

So then like I said, he's doing something similar to opening a browser.

He's doing something that connects him to the internet.

Gotcha.

yea he needs that programme to connect to other computers to share information, he doesn't need it to connect to the internet because he already is.

 

the indication of you being connected to the internet is on your modem/router.

Well then there you go.

When people refer to the internet, they're talking about the "world wide web".

World wide web = "internet".

 

Only a fucking dork would correct somebody referring to the "world wide web" as the internet. (Not that that's what you're doing, Swamp)

Or get confused at the term "turn the internet off".

And ch0 is full of fucking dorks.

Exactly...sort of

 

When you turn off your cable box, your cable is not disconnected.

 

When you close your browser, your Internet isn't disconnected or turned off either.

only a retard says turn the internet off, unless you actually do it.

 

my grandma doesn't even say closing a browser is turning off the internet, and she grew up with less internet than you did.

 

 

 

Dork says what?

You just admitted that you can turn off your cable without disconnecting it as an example for

your argument that you can't turn off your internet without disconnecting the modem.

 

Do you see how you just contradicted yourself?

That break from 12oz you took must have backed up your irrationality vents or something. I didn't say anything about a modem.

 

Look:

 

Think of your cable box and browser as the same thing. Both can be turned off.

 

BUT NEITHER DISCONNECTS/TURNS OFF CABLE OR INTERNET

You just said the exact opposite of what was explained in what Swamp posted.

Answer the question.

You're still contradicting yourself.

Cable box would be compared to the modem.

They are one in the same to normal people.

I can see how it would be two different things to a WOW playing dork

or a room full of Lamba Lamba Lamba nerds though.
