Huh? I think we need more information but I'm guessing on your 56k which disconnects every two hours? If that is the case their is no way of getting around it unless you connect to another ISP.

1. Get broadband
2. Get another ISP

Most unlimited dial-up services in the UK switch off automatically after 2 hours. But AOL (my dad used to use it) lets you keep it on for more than 2 hours, but it's a very slow ISP, and you could still get disconnected sometimes when the network is busy.

NTL dial up also disconnects every 2 hours. If you have XP theres a setting to make it auto reconnect and you can can programs that will do that for other OS as far as I know theres no easy way to stop it from kicking you (and stopping your ISP from removing you if you find a way to stay connected 24/7).

My ISP doesn't disconnect even though you leave it overnight.

Do you have to login or say yes to anuthing before you are online?

I do - in preferences it says disconnect after xxxxxminutes - change it or tell your providor to change it and also check - internet options in IE -advanced.
