    IE has an option under Tools/Internet Options/Connections and then usually properties for your dialup where you can specify a time to disconnect (i.e. - if idle more than X minutes). Have you checked this?

    If not - it may be something in your ISP setup (like aol, etc.)

    Your ISP is doing that. There are a number of programs you can use to prevent that from occuring. Go to ZDNET or one of the other shareware sites and do a search for "disconnect from the internet" and you should find a bunch.
