Can I increase timeout on dialup

  prince midas 12:05 27 Nov 2006

I know I can use a program that will keep my internet dialup activated such as keep alive etc.

But how can I increase the cutoff time when downloading say an update on my antivirus etc which says you have been connected for 20 mins & we will disconnect in 25 secs,without running a program alongside it such as keep alive.
Surely you should be able to increase this time in a setting somewhere.

Going from memory if you go to the Connections tab from Tools>Internet Options>highlight your ISP>Settings>Advanced tab>uncheck both the timeout boxes and then OK.
