Default logging out

I have a dial-up connection and when i'm on the net and leave it for a couple of minutes it logs out. sometimes i get a box with two options to either get off or stay connected and in the box is a count down timer going from 30 seconds and when it reaches 0 i get logged off. this really s**ts me when i'm downloading something and it switches off my connection. i know this isn't spyware. i've tried looking through control panel but i don't know what i'm looking for. can someone please tell me how to switch it off.

Default Hmmm...

What ISP do you have?
When I use NetZero on my freebie acount it does that. It doesn't see any activity and it logs out. Same for downloads. It doesn't consider a download as activity. Best bet is to ask the ISP you're using for some help.

You need to get a program that keeps your connection alive or so to speak.

Havent used this but give it a try and if not try to find another program simular to it
