Tesco.net keeps asking if I want to disconnect

Can anyone help with a very annoying glitch.
Whilst online Tesco.net appears every 30 seconds or less asking if I wish to disconnect. How do I stop it?
It's probably something simple but.....I can't think how to cure the problem.

I'm running 98SE. my problem is that when online I am continually having to click 'NO' to make the box disappear.....it's really annoying

I think you can put this right yourself, but for the life of me cannot remember where it is.

Somewhere (not very helpful, but someone will know what I'm refering to) there is an internet setting with something like "disconnect after idle for xx minutes". You can alter or disable this.

Will have a peep around my computer and see if I can find it. I'm using Win98se too!

A not very helpful,

Thanks Bodi.
Seems to have done the trick....
I agree with Seekit... Tesco net is much faster than AOL or Freeserve....I regularly connect at 49.6
