misters, is it a case of a line fault, or is it because you are not keeping the line active.

With some ISP's at peak times they disconnect you if they think you have left the keyboard after approx. 5 mins. If so then just keep refreshing the page every couple of mins. or so.

Do you use a dial-up thing from freeserve? If you do you could try to get the dial-up info and manually configure a connection.

You could also try from Internet Explorer:

Tools --> Internet Options --> Connections Tab --> Settings --> Advanced

Check to see that the Disconnect boxes are not checked.
