Should I use a special program to keep my connection active?

Question

Do you recommend installing "Stay Connected sconn40.exe"?

I am frequently cut off while surfing, downloading or checking email and thought this program would help me stay on line. Thanks Barbara

This question was answered on March 26, 2002. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

This program is designed to keep your connection active when you are working on something that does not use the internet or when you are leaving your computer unattended If you find that you are being cut off while surfing or downloading it probably will not help You are likely being disconnected due to the number of people that are connected through your Internet Service Provider (ISP) at that time

You could certainly try it out to see if it works, it comes with a 30 day money back guarantee if it does not work You may first want to contact your ISP to find out why exactly you are being disconnected so frequently (and keep in mind that they would definitely not appreciate the idea of using this program) In the end, your best choice may be to try a different ISP
