open the Tools at the top and go to the Internet options then the Connections TAB then select the Settings then the Properties for your connection and then its somewhere around there. You didn't say which windows/version of Internet Explorer.

Is it disconnecting after 20mins ?

Cheers for that chaps. I found the necessary options window but infact the 'disconnect if idle' box is not checked anyway, so something else is making me go offline. Any ideas? IE6 by the way.

Cheers.

Do you run an e-mail programme simultaneously ? Is this set to close connection after "sending & receiving" ?

Hi,
No, email is not set to close connection.
