Program name query

Hello everyone

A quick question to ask that there is a piece of software on the Net that allows you to keep your internet connection "live"...so that it doesn't allow the connection to drop?

I have used this in the past successfully, yet now cannot remember the name of the program, although I do remember that PC Advisor mentioned about this program a while ago?

I think that the program name starts with Re?

Can anyone help me please?

Thanks

Hello everyone...

Quickly popping back to say that I have found the software that I was looking for on my original request:-

However, has anyone used this with a router as it keeps on saying "no connections found" even though I do connect to the Net okay via router!

How do I configure the program to work with a Net connection supplied via a router?

Can anyone help please?

Thanks

I have my router to 'connect on demand' and have set the inactivity period to 45 minutes. I then use Outlook Express to keep the connection live by setting it to check for new emails every 20 minutes. Works a treat.

Thanks for your reply - I only connect my router when I need to...even then, I only download my emails into Outlook (not Express) when I am ready to do so.

This is why I was looking to re-use a program such as ReConnect - has anyone else successfully used ReConnect with a router setup, and how did they go about doing so?

Thanks
