    Lightbulb Prevent disconnection

    Combatting disconnects

    Get disconnected from your ISP frequently? Try this:

    Go to Modems in Control Panel (Start > Settings > Control Panel)

    From Modems select Properties, then the Connection tab

    Click the Advanced button

    In the Extra settings dialogue line, enter S10=50

    This will force the modem to stay connected without a carrier for up to 5 seconds


    I got the stuff from the site

    Greetings:

    I think an easier solution would be to rid yourself of that pesky dial-up connection in the first place.

    Most isp's over here will cut your connection after a period of inactivity, even with broadband

    I'd stay away from the dial-up connections. To many risky problems can affect your connection that can't be hassled with in contrast to a cable connection. Just my two cents.
