    Sorry if this is the incorrect forum but here goes...

    Since upgrading our pc with new mobo, cpu and installed SP2, now every time we connect to the net, it disconnects when we're not using it. It was always set so it would never hang up when idle but now I can't find where to check the box to leave it so it would be always on. I've checked the Network Connections and Internet Options and both boxes are checked to "never" but something still isn't right. Can anyone help? Hope this makes sense! ps.- we have adsl

    Omg that took awhile to figure out! Normally I always make sure that it's not set to disconnect after being idle for awhile but I haven't been having an issue in that regard and frankly have been having a bit of a time with all the options in Xp compared to 98. Anyhoo I attached a pic of the place in the Windows help you can go to to figure it out.
