When you are connected to your Internet Service Provider (ISP), you may be repeatedly disconnected after a set amount of time.


This behavior can occur if Dial-Up Networking is set to disconnect automatically after a set amount of time.


To resolve this issue, follow these steps:

  1. Double-click My Computer, and then double-click Dial-Up Networking.
  2. Click the phonebook entry for your ISP, click More, and then click User Preferences.
  3. In the Idle Seconds Before Hanging Up box, type 0.
  4. Click OK, click Close, and then close My Computer.
