[access-uk] Re: plus net

I've not found that to be a solution.  I've noticed though that the less I
download the more likely my connection is to stay live.  A couple of weeks
back I bought Replay A/V which captures streams (so it downloads stuff from
an address as opposed to what's coming through the sound card so you can use
that with Jaws or other streams or whatever).  Anyway I was capturing
several streams of four hour radio shows every day and since I cut the
number down to a couple, my connection is stable.  I'm paying 25 quid for a
2 meg connection with a very generous cap.

Hi Kevin,

There's a simple solution to this.  Just leave your Email program open and
checking for mail every minute.  If you do that, it will kick the connection
and keep it alive.

All the best

hi all, several months back plus net said they were going to start dropping
connections of users who weren't actually using the connection. kind of like
the old dial-up thing were if you left your connection unused for a period
of time, the connection was dropped and you had to reconnect. this is what
they are doing. if you leave your pc connected to the internet, but not
actually actively using it, plus net will disconnect you. i read the article
some while back on adslguide.org.
