Post 3+ Months Ago

HI guys and gals

I am new to this forum and from what I have been reading it sounds like a place I will visit often...

I have an ADSL connection which connects for only 2 minutes or so, and then disconnects. The only way I can keep it going is to open something like "emule" - this works everytime.

I am running Windows 2000 and the ADSL is run via a router (I am in germany and this is the standard setup) through my ethernet card - I have nothing else connected to the "network".

I have tried the obvious, like on the "dialup properties" window, I have change a setting to "disconnect after 4 hours of innactivity" but this did nothing.

I dont know what else to try - any ideas?

Your DSL provider's tech support?

They would be the best people to talk to, cuz they can check the connection at their end to make sure it's not a problem with them - I know some cable/dsl providers are messing up every 5 minutes it seems. Basically, if it's something beyond your control, they can check it out. :)
