    Or by timeout did you mean time before disconnect?
    Control Panel/Internet Options/Connections/Settings/Properties/Options

    When i am trying to get a new web page, if it takes too long to get, it stops trying to get it and says connection timed out. I don't get the page.
    I tried both of your suggestions. Unfortunately neither worked. I am on AOL browser. Thank you for trying. Any other sugestions will be greatly appreciated.

    windows key+r

    paste

    regdit

    navigate here;

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings.

    Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value, called "KeepAliveTimeout" and set it according to the value data below
