    force modem disconnect or power down

    I have an internal modem and sometimes even though i have disconnected from the internet the modem does not disengage properly and somehow stays in use. I know this because i have tried to reconnect sometimes and get error message: in use or not on!

    Is there any way , program or command that i can use to force the modem to reset?

    You could try to use one of the old fashioned AT style commands to try and get the modem to hangup the phone line (I believe the command was ATH)
