I believe that other than doing a graceful disconnect the only other thing is to leave the modem switched off for over 30 minutes - I believe I read that on Kitz Forums

Re: graceful shutdown

Wait about 30seconds after you've dropped the PPP session, then power off the router. After about a minute power off the modem.
When powering up again, ideally no less than an hour after switch off, wait until the modem has booted and all lights stabilise before powering up the router. When it's booted, you may need to log in and click Connect to establish a new PPP session.
