Dial Up Internet Connection Keeper

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

This looks like it could be a useful tool for those who rely on dial-up, out-of-band connections.

Dial up Internet users have to cope with several Internet connection related problems that their broadband brethren do not have to deal with at all. A major problem for instance is that the connection will be dropped after a specific amount of inactivity. Inactivity in this case means that no data is send or requested in that time. This happens for instance if the user opens an article on a website and begins reading it. In that time, no data is transferred to the ISP. The user may notice the dropped connection on the next click on a link, or request of a web page.
