One of the problems is that my machine at work does not have a modem 
and so can only connect to the internet through the network not the 
phoneline.  Maybe what I should have asked is, is there any software 
which deals with voice calls and when a certain code is entered on the 
phone it will set off a script that will connect it to the internet 
after the voice call is ended.
No problem leaving the computer on just the cost of phone calls.
