Is there a difference between 'in connection with' and 'in connection to'?

Hi Torsten,

I would go for 'connection with' as in: What I am saying has no connection with what the previous speaker has said.

'Connection to' strikes me as more physical/technical as in: Do you have a connection to broadband on your computer?
