    That depends. If you mean that disconnection when the connection is idle, then yes. There's all sorts of software for that. A windows setting too.
    If you mean they boot you off after a certain number of hours, then there is nothing you can do about it.

    If you're getting disconnected for idle time, just set your email to check every ten minutes.
    No need for programs.
     
  7. I think you are on dial up ....

    This one is still free..do not know if it will work for you...but Peili has a screenshot and enough info for you to decide...
    Keep It Alive is an easy-to-use program for keeping a dial-up Internet connection alive. It is a fact that many ISPs disconnect their clients dial-up connections if they are not active for a certain period of time. Keep It Alive keeps your dial-up connection alive by trying to get a web page in every a few minutes.
