I have a dial-up connection that gets to a max of 28.8K, but I used to be able to get more, somehow it went down. Anyways the only way I can download programs that go up to 100MB is to leave the Internet on all night. But it turns off in the middle of the night so I was wondering if anyone knows a program that would keep it on. I have checked the settings on the computer and it is set so it would never turn off the Internet after a time limit has gone by.

You ISP is probably disconnecting you after so many minutes for "inactivity". Some of them want that mouse clicking all the time, as in browsing.

I googled "stay connected" and this is the first thing it came up with.


That'll give you an idea what to look for. There's probably freeware available too, with some searching.
