I use a dial up modem and Windows XP Pro. Sometimes I have to leave my computer online for several hours if I am downloading a large file. However, every single time my connection hits that 10th hour of being online, it will automatically disconnect me from the internet. How can I set my computer up so that it doesn't automatically disconnect me from the internet at all? Or at least extend that time. I tried going into my connection options but it doesn't give me access to the "advanced" tab that I need so I can uncheck the tabs to tell it not to auto disconnect if idle or after a certain amount of time. I know you can go into "regedit" and do it that way but I'm not sure what values to put in.

Right click the two computers in the taskbar then go Status/Properties/Options here you can set the idle hangup time to "never" It may pay to check with your ISP to see if you are being disconnected from there.
