    Ask your ISP if they have some sort of network monitor that only monitors TCP/IP activity. I believe alot of games use UDP mainly so some ISP's see it as inactive and will cut you off. Or download a small keep-alive program you can find them on www.download.com and most just ping a site every so often so it shouldn't effect your lag.
