2 hour live connection

  cahpsuth2 13:22 09 Feb 2009

I have a problem which I don't know how long I've had it. I was downloading the i-tunes folder which takes some time as I'm dial-up, I've noticed that every 2 hours I have to re -enter my password and it re dials and I lose any any info which I was in the process of downloading and it starts again.How do I keep the connection live for longer than 2 hours. I have a dell with XP and SP3. Also Tiscali dial-up.

you may have auto disconnect ticked trouble is i'm not sure where it is,if you go tools-internet options-connections you may have to double click your connection and maybe advanced,apologies if that's wrong.

Are you sure that Tiscali don't limit your connection time to 2 hours? I used to have a Dial Up system which did just that, and you had to reconnect to continue using the Internet.

Thx guys, I just don't relish the thought of contacting Tiscali and repeating myself six times to be understood!

I must transfer to Tiscali.

The idea of only having to repeat myself to my ISP six times sounds wonderful! lol
