I keep getting disconnected from my internet server when there is a period of inactivity.

I use an internet relay chat that connects through my regular internet provider (msn). when I am on this, my provider does not recognize this as activity and after a while, I get disconnected. can you help me?

you have been great about helping me before and I just want to say thank you.

The Answer

You are looking for a keep alive program.  These programs will query a URL or non existent URL which will reset your ISP's disconnect timer with very little data transmitted.

A good place to find these is  A good share ware Keep Alive program is Connection Keeper.  Be sure to start it AFTER you connect to your ISP for it to work properly.
