    I have Windows ME. My internet provider is Earthlink. I keep getting disconnected for inactivity. I have downloaded 3-4 programs to stop this but they arent working. Does anyone have any suggestions ?????

    ;) Go into Control Panel. Click on Modem. Highlight the modem in the box. Click properties. Click connections. Uncheck the "Disconnect a call if idle for more than....." box. I use Earthlink and never had a disconnect problem. Good luck. KW1
