Hey! I have Netzero v7 and i cant find a program to keep netzero fromdisconnection after 2 hours of being idle. It beats the point of mehaving a 2nd line if i cant stay on it when i go out for the day andget my downloads done. Every program that was made to keep programslike aol,netzero and all that are out dated and wont work. So isprogram that will simulate mouse movements and any other way to keep mefrom being idle while i am gone?
Thanks

Blue: That wont work cause something needs to click the resume button or simulate mouse movements with netzero.

Johnny: I will try again with the search but i tried for awhile and only came up with stuff thats 2-3 years old.

Dialups usually get d/c after 2 hours even if idle.

You should check with your i.s.p. I am sure that maybe stilll the case, always happened with every dialup i.s.p. I used before broadband.

Other option if this is the case is to set your dialup setting to detect you have been booted off after 2 hours to redial and I guess you still use a d/l manager so should be o.k.

There was a program I used when I had dial up, I can't remember the name of it. But, it would run a ping in any interval you wanted to keep your connection alive. The thing about those things is that some isp's are on them, and are finding ways around them ...

i will try the acplug but i dont think it will work cause it says it hasnt been working with netzero. I am thinking that the programs that make activity thru your lines wont work cause none of the other programs that do that have worked. I am thinking that there needs to be a program thats updated that simulates mouse movements like stayalive or w/e its called.

Lee...if the program above doesnt work i will do it your way.

Thanks to you both...will get back to you about it either later today or tomorrow morning.

i ment it's 2-3 years out of date, especially as in the uk you can get BB for the same price as dial up, and whe are miles behind in internet tech :D :p

Lancer: I know that but they dont have dsl in my area which is kinda odd. The people out in the boonies like where my dad lives can get dsl but i cant.
Mastershakes: That program hasnt been updated in ages and doesnt work with my netzero.

I tried the redial if line gets dropped thing in the properties of my modem but that didnt work either. From the looks of it i might just have to live with it.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
