INternet connection Issues...

My friend has a computer with Onetel Dial Up connection. The internet works fine, the problem is just that it frequently disconnects itself automatically. Does anyone know about this. The one thing I know is that the cables are plugged in properly.

If you go to Tools>Internet Options>highlight your ISP>Settings Button>Connection tab>Advanced button, you should get a menu up.

This can be configured to terminate a connection as required if no activity for a certain time or left on permanently.

It was orginally conceived to prevent dialup connections being inadvertently left on when not in use (or that is what I would suspect).

Also check that in Outlook Express on the Send/Receive panel that "Hang Up after collecting messages" or words to that effect is Disabled i.e unchecked.

Another possibility is that someone has picked up the phone elsewhere and cut off the connection.
