Hey,

I use a dial up connection and I like to keep my computer connected for long periods of time but i've noticed after every 6 hours, my modem disconnects automatically, screwing up everything I was downloading.

I tried to check all my settings but I can't find anything that determines how long the pc stays connected until it disconnects.

The bottom line is I want to connect my computer and have it stay connected for as long as I want, not 6 hours.

Thanks for your help,

-Tom

Every ISP has a dial-up cut-off. Mine is 2 hours. Yours is 6 hours. You are very lucky.

Only solution.......Get broadband. Always on. No cut-off.

I had a feeling that my ISP controlled that and now I know for sure. Guess I'm going to look into broadband.

Thanks a lot,

Yep, nothing you can do about it, Tom. I can't get broadband...I would jump at it. Stuck with 56k.

Good luck. Hope it's available in your area.
