OnLine Connectivity

Does anyone out there still use the good old 56k Modem on there desktop PeeCee? :confused:

Well, I still do and on a daily (24hour) basis as its free from tariff costs and I’m not a big hurry to get what I need as I’m usually out busy or whatever (Mmm… LoL) :smiley:
Anywho, I keep getting Disconnected from my iSP which is REALLY annoying as its bad enough being slow, but when you use all the settings you possibly can within Win2k OS to reconnect if the line is dropped and yet it still doesn’t re-dial after sometime (randomly) …its really beginning to P!$$ me oFF! :mad:

I’m sure one of you out there use something to keep you connected, or atleast something that WiLL reconnect for me, using a number I designate.

PLEASE EVERYONE, let me know of ANYTHiNG you think that may help as I’ve been looking around on the WWW for abit and nothing that either WORKS well or is EASY to use, such very low proccessor usage.

Thanks to you ALL in advance! :wink:

Yeah, yeah, laugh all you like, but this system looks, runs & is a KooL machine, but most of all solid! Never need to reboot or kill, Oooo’yeah! :stuck_out_tongue:

I used to use 602pro to stay connected when I had a 56k dialup connection. I had configured it to reconnect as soon as it dropped the connection from the dialup server.

Heh… I found an outstanding program called Amazing Dialer. It is available here: http://www.win-media.com/download/amazingdialer_170_setup.exe
