You must be talking dial-up. I seem to remember way back in the days before 'always on' broadband connections my DUN used to auto-disconnect after 2 hours (set by ISP) unless connection was in use.

I used to get round this by getting my e-mail client to auto-schedule a check for incoming mail every 1 hr 59 min.

:cool:

some broadbanscompanies "disconnects" users when inactive.

mine used to do that after 15mins of inactivity but used a small program that autologged in every 5min.

i didnt get disconnected as such but i got logged out which basicly become the same thing in the end.
but now they have changed system and im connected aslong as my modem is on, no login or password is needed anymore.

Fair enough.

Although I've been with four different b'band ISPs and never seen that before. Ah well.

Another thought, although you've probably already covered it, do you have your router (or modem) connection set to 'always on' as opposed to 'connect on demand/idle timeout'?

:cool:

it is annoying to say atleast but there is several programs out there that prevents the connection to drop from inactivity.
atleast used to be one in norton systemworks.

btw kazaa was considered inactivity too.

Haha, he meant OC3D's server. If he goes over bandwidth limit thats not good..

[quote=XMS]to save on bandwidth mate, why not just do a:

ping -t www.google.com

at the command prompt. And maybe put it in your startup folder too.[/quote]

What if they ban his IP or google gets ****ed, ROFL.

There'd still be outgoing packets which would count as activity.
