Hi. I was trying to configure Win2K to automatically disconnect after 2 seconds (I'm using a time limited DSL package from my ISP). But I stumbled on the dialer only allowing idle times in MINUTES!! If I don't get around this I won't be able to spare my paid internet hours while I'm not downloading anything (i.e. while I'm reading pages).
Can anyone help on this one ?
Hi. I actually made a mistake while typing. Windows doesn't allow maximum idle times in seconds, only minutes!!!
Seting up my browser to disconnect after closing/downloading won't disconnect if I just load a web page and read it for 1 or 2 minutes.
What's not meant for that, windows or the internet access package ?
I know some other platforms allow it, there must be a way of doing it in windows too, maybe getting a 3rd party dialer ? I just though there would be another more straighforward way of doing it.
DSL is an always on type connection.. you'd have to manually do it. I'm sure there is a 3rd party piece of software out there that will keep disconnecting for you.. I can't imagine it to be in heavy demand so I wouldn't know where to find one.
Good luck on it.. sounds like more a headache than what it's worth. You could just start unplugging your network cable, maybe disable your network connection when you're done.. it's about the same as disconnecting.
