    RE:Keeping The connection alive

    Well Milhouse,you ahve an interesting question.
    As far as i know there is no setting called "keep Connection Alive"
    But im sure that there is one like "hang up if idle for so and so"
    Its called "Disconect when connection is no longer requiered.
    If you have this option selected, try to disable it, then see it
    it prevails...

    As i am connected to a router, i cannot see an ointernet connection and therefore cannot tell you where this etting is located, just look for it and just try different options!

    Hope this Helps!

    The only place in windows I can think of right now that has a "keep connection alive" option is the different FTP clients available....

    You could try enabling the in "disconnect when connections is no longer required" and setting the disconnect time to the highest setting. If you're still disconnected after 20 minutes, chances are it's your isp doing the disconnecting...

    Do a Google with "keep connection alive" and you will find any amount of (free) keep-alive proggies.
