I recently got a pc for my kids with windows xp on it. The only problem with this is that it disconnects from the internet after 10-15 mins if the page is not changed. The play on-line adventure games and this is becoming very annoying.
Any help would be most greatful.

It may be trying to dial up. So Tools/Internet Options/Connections and make sure the 'never dial a connection' is 'checked'
